  • We live in a windy spot. It seems like the wind is always blowing here. And our house likes to moan in the wind. I’m sure some people don’t like the sound, but I do. The wind blows and whistles by and here I am all snug and safe in the house.

    The small wood-framed building on Main Cross in Taylorsville has been a center of learning since it was constructed in 1909. For most of its existence, it housed the public library.
