#347 Handley Library

What to do when meeting up with your Colorado friends in Winchester? Feed them of course!
And then take them to visit a cool old library. Built of Indiana limestone in 1913, the Handley Library was renovated in 1999 and is now on the National Register of Historic Places. It looks fabulous.
Highlights include the stained glass dome of the rotunda,
the gorgeous wood-paneled reading rooms,
the 3-story spiral staircases and light fixtures,
and the thick glass floors in the stacks.

Yours in knowing that these are true friends who are enthusiastic about touring a small-town library,

  1. Nice!! Just got home last night from my half of the east coast trip. Was good. Will be catching up with you on-line now, but still keeping in touch. Rob is in KC this week. Thanks for meeting us and planning our visit activities!
