The Haskell Free Library and Opera House is probably the only cultural institution that’s bisected by an international border. That’s because the US/Canadian border slices right through the library’s Kenneth Baldwin International Reading Room.
You enter the imposing turn-of-the-century building from Derby Line, Vermont and check-out books in Stanstead, Quebec. This paragon of internationalism is governed by a seven member board—four Americans and three Canadians.
There’s no customs presence in the building, but you’re expected to exit to the nation that you entered from.
