Wow, can't believe it's been almost two years since I last posted. But hey, there's only so much spare time in a life to devote to writing, so one has to prioritize and the new novel definitely takes the priority... but I was on a day trip to central Illinois to do a little research on the lay of the land down there and stumbled upon this gem. Unfortunately, it was closed so I couldn't go inside. All the more reason to take another jaunt down to Havana, Illinois on the lovely, slow-moving Illinois River. But I'll go on a weekday, when the library is open. You can find out more about this little jewel box that public library benefactor Andrew Carnegie helped fund by checking out their website here.
