Spending some time in the City earlier today.. I checked out the Main Branch library this afternoon, (and got a library card before I headed out.) The first thing I saw when I walked in was this lovely glass domed skylight.. I was like "Wait a minute!"
I wasn't supposed to be thinking about maths today! =) ..and yet I was:
(the skylight had me thinking of an old book..)
The next thing I noticed was the sheer size and contrasting newness while all around was the unmistakable smell of musty old books.
stairs.. there's some 6 floors..
here at the entry you cross over a bridge of sorts and look down onto the first floor:
I made sure to get a library card before I headed out. They didn't have the book I wanted to checkout but I could place a hold order but would rather not make a special trip to the city just to borrow a book,(unless it's a really good book!) Yeah, I'm lazy like that. ;)
The sun was starting to fade.. time to go home! I couldn't leave without a photo of one of the Market Streetcars..
