    It looks like they won’t have to worry about UV damaging the books!

  2. deanna valenti meyer says:

    What an interesting building this is. I’m sure it’s had many tenants in it’s life…and how can you not like the “billboard” on the side? :) Totally cool!!

  3. deb says:

    OMG! Thank you, Matt! Did you read about my obsession with libraries or are we just on the same wave-length?
    *can’t control self – must research google*
    It’s a branch of the Whitman County Library It’s open Monday evenings and Friday mornings.

  4. Candice In Alabama says:

    Another interesting detail on the upper front. Also what -PROOF are the OVERALLS?

    I don’t trust a building without windows…unless it’s a local dive bar. Cheers!

      Maybe it’s a bar with a library? Or a library with a bar. Can’t decide which one. But it does look like a bar to me with a library in it.

      • Janine says:

        Dorinda, how about a bar named “Endicott Library?” The sign and drop-box are just kitsch to add to the theme. I’ll order you a Hemmingway Fizz.

  6. Lori from Calif. says:

    There were 621 people in Endicott as of the 2000 census –,_Washington

  7. MN Roxanne says:

    Interesting color combination….

  8. Gigi says:

    Is the National Library Symbol the only sign that the building is a library?

  9. Dorinda from Mentor, Oh. says:

    I clicked on deb’s link to see and Wow, I can’t believe it. It actually is a library! I’m surprised because it has no windows. But it is better for the books not to be in sunlight I guess. Great shot Matt. And I wonder too what the whole side of the building ad is for.

    It seems a Norwegian immigrant in Minnesota (by way of La Crosse Wisconsin) began a clothing line by the name of the Lion Brand and he had a line of Overalls that were “Rip-Proof”. Having read about the large footed Nordstom’s family that kept migrating west from Minnesota to start a shoe store of their own, I imagine that many more of these “rip proof” ads are along this route through to Seattle. And it seems the “rip-proof” claim was adopted later by the Levi company when rivets were added to their own line of work wear.
