View from Carter's Corner

It's midday downtown, and here's a view across Broad Street from the Carter Drug corner. The building you see in the background (from left of the tree and to the right of the tree) is the Selma-Dallas County Public Library. Yes, it's a big building! The entrance is behind the tree, and to the left is adult fiction and a large section of large-print books as well as audio books, videos, DVDs and the main desk. Upstairs, you find nonfiction, reference, the computer lab and genealogy. Sections on the right house meeting rooms and offices downstairs and children's and youth books upstairs, along with a big room used for puppet shows and other special events. Today's schedule includes an acrylic painting workshop for adults and teens, Open House Art and a Kirigami Class for ages 8 and up.

I almost forgot! Just inside the entrance to the right is Selma's Visitor Information Center.

(Click on the photo to enlarge it, and you can get a better view of the butterfly sculptures on the street corners.)

I like the fact that your library is big. That way it can contain big books!

;-) Nice shot!

It sounds like there's a lot going on at the library. It's nice to make those programs available to the community.

Is the library on the corner where the Wilby theater used to be?

Hi John.
Yes, the library is located where the theater once stood. Thanks for visiting!
