Photo Tour of The First Public Library in the U.S. - with Chris from Wild Moo Books!

Hi, I'm Chris from the blog, Wildmoo Books. I'm here to share with you a photo tour of Scoville Memorial Library in Salisbury, CT, the first public library in the U.S.  It’s located in the northwest corner of the state, just miles from both New York and Massachusetts.

"Scoville Memorial Library was established in 1895. The Library as we know it today, grew from two historic libraries, one of which received town tax dollars in 1810, making it the first publicly funded library in the United States.” - from Scoville Library Website.
