EXETER â€“ The townâ€™s book-loving residents recall with fondness the one-room Manton Library, located in a corner of town hall with volumes piled in windowsills and everywhere else there was an inch of space.
When patrons checked out a book, the librarian, Kathryn Rhodes, would say, â€śYou really donâ€™t need to return itâ€ť because, well, she was inundated with literature. As the popular tee-shirt declares: So many books. So little time.
