Way back in August, this was the first Public Library I visited on the trip. The Passmore Edwards Free Library in Falmouth, Cornwall, England is very reminiscent of a small/medium size Public Library in the US. Separate departments for Children?s Services, Internet access, reference and check-out desks, etc. And very, very busy. Too busy for the staff size in fact. It all felt very familiar. Here is their official web site. Falmouth, by the way, is a friendly, pretty and quaint seafaring village/town. Home of the best and original Cornish Pasties, sort of like individual lunch pies, usually filled with meat, onions and cabbage. Mmmmmm!
