Hatch, by Watertown Free Public Library
Hatch is in a mall, near an innovation space. The day I visited it, I could not photograph it all as there was a coding class held out the back. It was promoted through the mall You can see more photographs here .

This library was opened in 2013. It is next to a park, and a community garden.  The park was very well used when I visited and the library was popular.  I realise that it never looks that way, but my aim is not not photograph people in the library, and tha...

The library has been in this building for a couple of decades.  It was put here as part of urban renewal. This shows the events for June on the noticeboard outside the library. There are lovely reading spaces in this library

The Central Library is undergoing renovations, while parts of it remain open. This shows part of the adult non-fiction area and the red is lovely.  It is interesting that often public libraries in the USA have higher shelving than Australia.  Most of this s...
