The Thomas Hughes Library in Rugby is a collection of over 5000 books collected in the 1880s. I have been in dozens of libraries like this in my travels, but never one where you could pick up and read the books on the shelf. This was beyond special.
Did you know there was a time when books were so expensive to produce, only the rich could afford to own them? Even libraries, where they existed, would only allow people of particular class or standing to enter and read the books they had.

🐎 Happy birthday to #louislamour#westernwriter born March 22, 1908.🐎 From louislamour.com: "Though the LaMoore household had a modest collection of books, it was at the nearby Alfred Dickey Free Library, where his eldest sister, Edna, was a librarian, that Louis spent many long hours exploring in depth subjects only touched on by the schools. He expanded his education by studying far afield of the local curriculum. In addition to the non-fiction study of history and the natural sciences, Louis was captivated by the fiction of Robert Louis #Stevenson , Jack London, Edgar Rice #Burroughs and others ... letting them carry him away to the south seas, the gold fields of the Yukon, the Spanish Main, the center of the earth and the dying red planet of Mars." 🐎 He sold over 200 million books even though critics said "His Western fiction is strictly formulary" however, "Tuska also notes 'At his best, L'Amour was a master of spectacular action and stories with a vivid, propulsive forward motion.'" 🐎*
