Cape Cod Libraries: A History and Guide (History & Guide) (Paperback)
Cape Cod is home to thirty four libraries, each with its own wonderful history.
One library was named for an extraordinarily feisty woman. Two others burned down during blizzards. A French Marquis funded a Lower Cape library, and one in Mid-Cape had Kurt Vonnegut as a board member. One on the Outer Cape holds an annual Turnip Festival, and three others don't have computers. A stained-glass Town Seal is in an Upper Cape library's dome, while another has a schooner inside. A brand of canned coffee even paid for one library's construction.
Join local author Gerree Hogan as she reveals stories of intrigue, politics, betrayal, heroes, and whimsy that make these libraries so unique.
