Blue Grass Book Bank, a home away from home

Blue Grass, VA – The book bank is housed in a building that once served as a post office and a bank. The original teller window is still there with antique woodwork and iron bars. A carport in the back was enclosed to hold the adult section and the arts and crafts area, while the kids section is housed in the old bank vault.

In the community of Blue Grass, in Highland County, the book bank offers more than just books. It’s a home away from home for area kids.
