Erected in 1913, the Joslin Memorial Library was the gift of George A. Joslin, a Waitsfield man who made his fortune in the newspaper business in the West. The building, constructed at a cost of $21,387, is still one of the finest of its kind in the state. As you enter the building between the two imposing Indiana Bedford Limestone columns, notice the starburst windows over the door and the slate hip roof decorated with dentils. The entry is polished marble. The circulation desk is a fine example of woodworking and the handsome light fixtures are original. Of particular note is the stained glass skylight called an art-glass window.
