Reading all the Books

I remember that I had set a goal to read as many of the books in my elementary school library as possible. The goal was short lived as I found I could either read or play football and hockey with my friends at the park. I preferred the later. Life is about decisions and so the goal was never realized. However, before Franklin Dewey Richards (born in 1821) was ten-years old he read all the books that were stored where?
a.      The Congregational Church that his family attended
b.      The family library
c.       The town courthouse
d.      His school library
Yesterday’s answer:
(D)   Money
The following from William Clayton’s journal:   Friday, 19th . . . . Went with the band [Nauvoo Brass Band] to hold a concert at the (Indian) village. Many went from the camp. The Indians . . . collected $10.10 and gave it to us, and the (Indian) agent Mr. Mitchel gave a dinner to all that came.
