Another unique find while traveling this summer. We stopped to use the Internet at the  Munising Schools Public Library while there I saw a card catalog that looked to be in use. On closer inspection I saw that it is a Seed Library. There are envelopes of seeds in the drawers with instructions on planting. They offer instructions for saving seeds to keep the Seed Library going. There is an instructional flyer on top of the catalog with websites that provide more information.

I came across this Free Library at the Castle Rock County Park near Friendship, WI.  This library is part of the Little Free Library movement  that was started Wisconsin in 2009. It has now become an international program. I will keep watching for more to share as we travel.

This beautiful library is just a few years old with something for all ages. I was greeted by a warm and friendly staff who are available to answer questions and give directions. I appreciated the ongoing book sale a was able to pick a paperback to carry and read this summer. For more information go to whitneylibrary.org.

This library combines books and modern day technology with a beautiful historic building. There are current titles readily available, a children’s section and reading areas tucked into corners surrounded by memorabilia and personal items from the area. I enjoyed the atmosphere and friendly staff.

South Tillamook County Library Pacific City, Oregon

Pacific City, Oregon Public Library

6200 Camp Street, Pacific City, Oregon  97135

This lovely welcoming library is part of the Tillamook County Library System. The free wifi 24 hours a day is a great asset to this community with all the tourism that comes to the beach. There is also a variety of materials for all ages and a comfortable area where parents can interact with their children. Around the Library are comfortable chairs for reading  and tables to spread out if needed.  One sculpture in the Children’s area that caught my eye is “Philbert” the Oregon Beaver. It was handcrafted by Jim Stober in 1988. Beside the library is a community garden with all produce going to local food banks.  This is  a welcoming place for a get away from the crowds on the beach.
