Berlin Free Town Library
There are three public libraries in close proximity to where I live:
1. Grafton Community Library
2. Petersburgh Public Library
3. Berlin Free Town Library
These libraries have interesting histories. The Grafton Community Library was started in 1945 largely through the efforts of critic/author Granville Hicks (author of Small Town a study of life in a small town based on Grafton). When the Berlin Chess Club held their organizational meeting in 1894, the members also decided to start a library.
