Lost Libraries and Hope

A great story of a scholar, his books and private library,  lost in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.  This story from Harpers by John Kaag captures with one tale, the fear I live with that I am surrounded by lost libraries arising from the halls of New England academies awaiting re-discovery, cataloging, care, and safe haven but I really can't figure out a way to get to those libraries before they become lost in time and place.  Enjoy the read.....
