This library is a cousin to one of the Duluth branch libraries, in that it is located in a small shopping mall. As in Duluth, you enter the mall, walk straight ahead, and there is the library. However, County Park Branch has something I'm pretty sure Duluth lacks: Alice, a ghostly presence which has been seen and/or heard by many!
As often happens when I get talking to staff at the beginning of a visit, I tend to neglect my notes. I can say, however, that the kids' area has two computers, lots of series books, a wooden train table (with the track fastened down), and several couches and easy chairs. Many stuffed animals line the tops of the shelves.
When I was looking at the periodicals in the adult area, I noticed that Finnish periodicals "Seura and Apu are now shelved with the Finnish books."
At this point staff were busy with patrons, so I slipped away. No, I did not see or hear Alice!

A library inside a mall...
...is still a library!
