When I travel, I always like to pay a visit to the local library if I can find it.
Seattle’s downtown library is all sharp angles and contemporary. The exterior walls are all glass and metal. Inside the escalators glow neon green, and the floors are bright tangerine. The ceilings are high, and it’s very spacious inside. It was also packed on a Saturday. It reminded me a bit of a mall because of the traffic flow and all the people.
The library in the Iowa State Capital is a contribution from E. Check out the four stories of neatly arranged books. I’m guessing the contents of these books are more of a legal nature (the Supreme Court is housed in the same building). I wouldn’t mind spending a lot of time in a room like this, irregardless.
Oddly, I don’t have any photos of my favorite local library. I need to remedy that once it stops raining.
Do you have a favorite library?
