Library Wanderings: Hudsonville Public Library (Gary Byker Memorial Library)

 

Pick a library book, plop down on a chair or couch, and rest your feet on this sturdy turtle! You’ll find this guy in the couch area, crawling around the rug with pictures of books.

I loved the book they had on their coffee-table: Random Acts Of Kindness

In the background you can see their music display, which appears to be hand-crafted in the shape of a harp.

Feeling nostalgic for VHS tapes? There is still a small section of them here. I should add that they have a much larger section of DVD’s.

In Hudsonville, they are extremely proud of their community history. Check out this display of the 1956 tornado.

Not all of the library had that old-fashioned feel to it. Their book stacks and children’s area were extremely up to date (no dusty, outdated stuff!).  This little corner, which I dubbed “the peace corner” was very inviting.

This Hudsonville Library is both classy and modern. I loved my visit to this small library!
