James Anderson had this to say, "A little bit of trivia: back in the day, the library for Bolton was located in St. Mary's church, in the room adjacent to our church kitchen. When I was a child, that's where I checked out books. In fact, once, when someone from the library system was traveling to a meeting in Bolton, they Googled it, and they landed at St. Mary's!" And he added, "We love our library. It is very important to our community."
