Downton Abbey’s sixth season is upon us and I’m a bit in denial. If you’re a die-hard Downton fan like myself, then you’re probably feeling the same way right about now. Perhaps you’re excited to see what the season will bring, but you’re probably also a little sad to think about the reality – this is the last and final season – say it isn’t so. The only thing to do right now is enjoy it while it lasts. Once the final season wraps up, you may be in pursuit of something a little Downton-esque to fill the void, and your local library can help.
