Now this is a school library. Okay, more precisely, it's a school turned into a public library. And what a library it is. The story begins over 85 years ago in the charming northern Michigan tourist town of Charlevoix, Michigan. In 1927 a grade school and gymnasium was built which served the local children for more than 70 years, beginning as a K-8 school, then becoming a K-12 school, and in the 60's--a middle school. The campus was later abandoned after a new middle school was built in 2004. Luckily, it wasn't abandoned for long.
