n Bath, Maine, in a building that looks a little bit like a castle, stands the Patten Free Library. It is named after the two visionaries, brothers, who recognized the cultural significance of a Library in a community. They contributed a house for the collection of books. It’s fun to go there with its many nooks and crannies and comfy seating places in which to curl up and get lost in reading ideas, stories, and poetry of authors from around the world. After the Patten brothers many contributed to the building of the building and the collection. The original establishment came with the stipulation that the library be free to all Bath citizens.
