Read Any Good Books Lately?


Welcome to Applejack Lane on this Outdoor Wednesday. Today, we will take a little trip around our town  to the...



which was once Thomas Jefferson Grammar School...

and in front of the library, we have a metal sculpture of a book created by local artist Willie Ferguson...






Read any good books lately?

Thanks for the tour of the library and grounds. The building itself reminds me of an elementary school in my old neighborhood.

I wonder what story is in that giant book??? I love to read, and I would have to think that it's something wonderful.

Happy OW to you...

I love these sculptures around Staunton. Now I know who made them! I don't think I've ever seen the library. It's too bad that schools now aren't built to look attractive like this one.

Beautiful building! As a "bookworm" this post really spoke to me! I wish I had some reading suggestions! I have only been reading textbooks lately!

What a beautiful library. I'm so happy that they repurposed this beautiful old school, and how perfect that it's now a library. I love the sculpture. Great post, I love libraries and bookstores. Kathy

Neat post, I love that sculpture and I love reading too. I am reading the Sookie Stackhouse
southern vampire series and I just
finished a new Nicholas Sparks book that I really liked too. You have a beautiful library. Ours are all modern looking.

What a great web log. I spend hours on the net reading blogs, about tons of various subjects. I have to first of all give praise to whoever created your theme and second of all to you for writing what i can only describe as an fabulous article. I honestly believe there is a skill to writing articles that only very few posses and honestly you got it. The combining of demonstrative and upper-class content is by all odds super rare with the astronomic amount of blogs on the cyberspace.
