ECW Weekender: Libraries!

Raise your hand if you purposely plan a stop at the library during your “pre-winter storm” errand trip! One of our editors has admitted to that, and we’re pretty sure others do the same because there’s nothing quite like staying cozy at home when a snow day hits.

This got us thinking about libraries and why we love them, so it seemed like the perfect moment to dig back into the ECW archives and pull out some posts about special libraries and archives across the country and research moments. Maybe one is “in your backyard” or maybe you’ll want to plan a special trip for later in the year.

We can think of a few more libraries and archives that we need to write about. And we’d love to hear about your favorite library and why it’s at the top of your list…
