If These Walls Could Talk

 An unusual find in New Hampshire behind the walls of The Wilton Public-Gregg Free Library, Jessie Salisbury reports that, "the stenciling was found by a conservator during an evaluation of the room, and several patches of it have been carefully uncovered by chipping off the paint. The artwork looks like a brown trellis over green leaves. Several shaded blue circles are also visible." Hidden elaborate stenciling resurfaces at library. This library has been called the "jewel of Wilton." And now it seems like there's a wall of reasons why.

Are there treasures in your library waiting to be discovered?  I know about the books already.
