    A library is a sort of “poor man’s college” where books and volumes of every kind under the sun are loaned to borrowers. This photo shows a portion of the Windsor Public Library, which houses over 40,000 volumes, and possesses a patronage that is growing steadily, year by year. The original public library building stood on Ferry Street. It as long since been demolished.
