And, from memory, this was done on purpose with the library straddling 
the border http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haskell_Free_Library_and_Opera_House

 From wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stanstead,_Quebec
The original owners were a couple with dual nationality; Mr. Carlos F. 
Haskell was an American businessman from Derby Line who owned a number 
of sawmills, while Mrs. Haskell was born in Canada. The intent was that 
people on both sides of the border would have use of the facility, which 
is now a designated historic site.
