Emily Taber Public Library

The above shots are of the Emily Taber Public Library in Macclenny, Florida (about 30 miles west of Jacksonville). It is housed in what was originally the Baker County Courthouse, built in 1908 - making it 100 years old this year. It had become a bit run down and the corner bricks were crumbling and the whole building seemed in danger of collapsing not too many years ago, but a full restoration was done in recent years and now it stands proudly restored to its former glory.
