LAUREL FORK — The Laurel Fork community library may be the first that measured its books in pounds.
That's because an early summer move drove home the weightiness of its collection. Organizer Annetta Stanley estimated the books would tip the scales at more than 5,000 pounds.
That's about 3,000 books total.
A Laurel Fork native who lived in North Carolina until her return to the area about nine years ago, Stanley actually Freecycled her way into creating a community library.
