2014 Coupville Washington Library

Coupeville Public Library

Coupeville, WA 98239-0745

Coupeville Public Library http://www.sno-isle.org/locations/coupeville/ is part of the SNO-ISLE Libraries serving Snohomish and Island counties.

This lovely library in Coupeville has several displays set up to encourage reading by all ages. The building is inviting with places to set and read, public access to the internet and many windows giving it an open feeling. What caught my eye was the beautiful arch over the entrance to the children’s department and the Large Print collection near the reading area. The Friends of the Library have a book sale area near the entrance.

IMG_1422.JPG Lexington Library is easily to find and is laid out to give customers ease of access to computers and materials as well as space to work, read, and study.  In the foyer there is an Art Pig with books  beside it, one of many Art Pigs found in the city.  Those who love new books find that they are readily available just inside the entrance with tables nearby  to work at or browse materials. Finding materials is made  easy with several special collections; The Classics, Holiday and Short Stories as well as a rack of Classic Zane Grey westerns to be browsed and checked out.  The Genealogy Room is open to the public for research and has census records on microfilm along with many other volumes including Daughters of the American Revolution 1929-1939.

IMG_1424.JPGLexington Library is also a local depository for Government Documents even though many are accessible online.  There is an area set aside for young adults with books laid out making it easy to find the next book in a series, browse or study.

IMG_1425.JPGI loved the House Elf like the one in Harry Potter that is on display here. The Children’s department is a large room with computer access, and a large story area with a beautiful mural. This area is open for the children to put on plays or puppet shows when a program is not in progress.  The pillar made into a giant beanstalk leading to the sky highlights the efforts of this library to make the children and parents feel at home here.  Check the website for program information or go by to see what is happening here.
