Local poet Bridget Lowe spent many of her childhood and teenage days at the Corinth branch of Johnson County Library. In a post on the Ploughshares blog, she wrote about finding Anaïs Nin on the shelves--and how that discovery affected her. She writes:
"I like to imagine a sneaky librarian in the 1950s and ’60s ordering the works on the sly and slipping them onto the shelves. Whatever brave soul purchased those books, I want to thank him or her for ushering me through a difficult time, and for bringing Anaïs to Kansas."
