“To Chill or Not to Chill” is a long four-part story that first appeared in Archie and Friends 78 (February 2004). The local paper is having a contest: they’ve hidden a green plastic donut somewhere, and the first person to find it wins $5,000.
In the fourth part, Ethel decides to go to the library.
Of course, a library is the perfect place to sit down, relax, and sort things out.
On the next page, Dilton and Nancy are talking and he gets the idea to go into the library to look for the donut there. He mentions, “This library is also the bigger of our two branches!” When they enter, we get a reverse shot of the panel with Ethel.
Notice Dilton’s speech bubble is in dotted lines, indicating he’s whispering.
This is the first time I’ve seen a street address for any branch of the library, as far as I can remember. In a later panel a grey-haired librarian (a woman, of course) angrily tells Ethel to be quiet.
