1909 Bridge Memorial Library, Walpole, New Hampshire

[LIB7236] In 1891, Hudson Eliot Bridge erected the present library building as a memorial to his father, Hudson Ernestus Bridge. A two-room structure, the Bridge Memorial Library was given to the town complete with furniture. The present day Reading Room retains the feel of an old-fashioned library, while the Stack room remains what it has always been -- a room to store books. In 1961, another room was added in order to cope with the library’s space needs. This room is now the Children’s Room. It is open and airy and provides space for children’s programs as well as easy access to books for younger patrons. [Source]
