Weathervane Wednesday ~ Above a Library

Weathervane Wednesday is an on-going series of photographs I post every week.  I started out by publishing only weather vanes from the Londonderry area, but now I've been finding interesting weather vanes from all over New England.  Sometimes these weather vanes are whimsical, or historical, but all are very unique.  Often, my readers tip me off to some very special and unusual weather vanes.

Today's weather vane is from somewhere in Massachusetts.

Do you know the location of weather vane #280?  Scroll down to see the answer...

This charming weathervane was photographed above the cupola on the Salisbury Public Library in Salisbury, Massachusetts.  This is a brand new library building, opened in September 2015.  There has been a public library in Salisbury since 1885.  It's a beautiful new building in the center of town on the green.

The weathervane above the library is just as beautiful.  There is a link to the video of the weathervane installation below.  It was made by New England Weathervanes in Seabrook, New Hampshire.  The librarians in the video explain their rationale behind the design of two young adults reading under a shining star.

  1. I love this story, Heather! The video is terrific. I often read your posts about weather vanes, but this one is extra special because of the history behind it.
