Schools, though, I couldn't find much about either. At least, not for towns that probably have only about 20 kids...
Anyone have any information on what it's like in really small towns like this? Both from a general perspective and an infrastructure perspective?
My search terms:
small town police
really small town services
small town life
really small town life
small town schools
towns under 300 population
...and a few more I have forgotten by now.
(For context, I'll be using this information in my next novel, which will be serialized on Livejournal/my blog starting in late September! So you could ostensibly come see the results of your suggestions then.)
