The East Hampton Library

A cool and cloudy day,  a good stay at home with a book and cup of tea day, but first a visit to the East Hampton Library
On the way in, a Lion's club eyeglass collection bin.
The foyer has a fireplace and cozy seating.
The stacks!
Books, books everywhere.
A book laden corridor with a view to secluded garden.
I made a pilgrimage to the incredible Long Island Collection.
The Long Island Collection is an invaluable resource of Hamptons history careful curated and policed by a diligent and knowledgeable reference librarian. I was impressed with the librarian's care of materials and attention to detail. The East Hampton library contains world class materials and the care of them is world class also. A thermostat minds the atmosphere in every room. The historic materials here are properly cherished.
I'm still thinking about clocks.
A magnificent painting by Hubbard Latham Fordham.

The library has a collection of Whaling Logs
many are digitized here
As a book lover, nothing beats a trip to the library, especially this one.
