Libraries

There’s just something about libraries that keeps me coming back- free books, perhaps?  Okay, I do appreciate the whole free concept of the library, but I also enjoy libraries for the spaces they are: a place to elevate yourself with learning (this is why older libraries all have stairs leading to the front entrance).  I also admire the architecture of libraries; the building needs to entice people to come in, but also set the tone of a place for quiet study.

Here are a few libraries from around the world:

Carnegie Public Library, Hokitika, New Zealand.

K.B. Center Library, Gorizia, Italy.

Ballard Library, Seattle, WA.

Waynoka Public Library, Waynoka, OK.

Carnegie Library, Dawson, GA.

Geisel Library, UC San Diego.

Downtown Seattle Library, Seattle, WA.
