Ocracoke Library

In November, 2015, Ocracoke Preservation Society published an on-line exhibit featuring the history of the Ocracoke Library. The article includes this photo of Marguerite Boos in the 80-square-foot building which served as the island library (and the country's smallest library) for twenty years.  

You can visit OPS's on-line exhibit by following this link:

  2. I remember visiting that tiny library in the late 1970s and early 1980s. It was amazing!
