Here’s one of my favorite places in the city: The Vancouver Public Library.
It was modeled after the Roman Colosseum, and though you can’t see it in these photos, there’s also a garden on the roof (inaccessible to the public). Loads of natural light comes in because of all the glass, and there are catwalks more than 6 floors up, also lined with glass. It’s terrifying if you’re afraid of heights like me, but when I need a book, I need a book.
The first thing that always hits me is the smell: coffee, pizza, paper, glued bindings. Bliss! This is the foyer, lined with shops, and the library entrance is to the left.
This reminds me how many books on my ‘to be read’ wish list. What are some books on your to-read list?
