Bassett Memorial Library, Wawona, Yosemite National Park
Bassett Memorial Library, Yosemite National Park
Recently, I spent several days in beautiful Yosemite National Park, staying in Wawona at the south end of the park. Among other facilities, the community includes an elementary school and a charming public library nestled in the redwoods. The Bassett Memorial Library is part of the Mariposa County Library system. As I often do when I travel, I stopped in to meet the librarian and had a nice chat. I learned that the library has a very supportive Friends group that helps keep it open every day. While the library is small, I was told that people can order books from anywhere in the system and have them sent to the library. So I looked up the online catalogue and was pleased to discover that the system lists 109 of my books, including Hatching Chicks in Room 6 and most of my other recent books.
