UPDATE. The Bart Starr biographies are gone, but I highly recommend Richard Russo's Bridge of Sighs


This Little Free Library is located along a mid-block sidewalk connecting Elmwood and Hubbard avenues in Middleton.  The mostly obscured stone house you see at the end of the sidewalk is the home of a former Middleton Public Library board president.



A map of registered Little Free Libraries. (Middleton and far west side of Madison.)  Neither of the two I visited today are designated here.


Books of the Times:  Bridge of Sighs by Richard Russo.   Coming of Age Upstate:  To Grow and Not Change? (9/24/2007)

Note the flashlight for nighttime browsing.  (Sorry, I didn't check to see if it actually works.)



Which is why I'm donating this Jane Austen paperback my wife recently read.  (The first book she hasn't read on her iPhone in over a year.)
