Library #15 Williamsville Village Branch

Today, we went in our backyard to the Williamsville Branch on Main Street in the village of Williamsville. We pick up a fruit and vegetable share from a local farm at the train depot on Long Street during the summer months and have driven by this branch a lot of times. We finally were able to stop and check it out! This is another of the Amherst Library branches, so there were bikes on top of the book cases for the summer raffle. We liked the rocking chair and the mural on the walls of the local architecture, including the Old Red Mill, in the village. Next door is the Village Hall, and a statue made from the October Storm trees of Frank Lloyd Wright--since it was the week that residents voted on village disolution, he was holding an "I love Williamsville" sign. We checked out our books and then wandered behind the library to Island Park--what a great spot to sit and read or just play. We then went across Main Street to see one of our favorite places; Glenn Park and its beaufiful waterfall. A late afternoon well spent!


  1. What a wonderful project! I just wanted to let you know that I linked to you today at my blog, The Poem Farm. Happy reading!

  2. What a great commitment to your family AND WNY! I too love touring our local libraries. What until you get to the Central branch downtown...your kids will love it. (and not only for the very steep escalators). I look forward to hearing of your next adventure.
