First off, the blog redesign is finally done. I think this will stick for a while. It’s simple, but I’m liking the fresh colour palette.
Secondly I was in NYC last week, which was the main reason for my absence. When I can, I like checking out the libraries in different cities, and I took some photos for you.
I thought it was a museum at first, because there were tourists walking around taking photos. My question was – if this is a library where are all the books?
Check out the painted ceilings. It turns out that you need to request a book from the collection, and someone will fetch it for you.
I imagine there must be books vaulted away in the basements or back rooms.
And it also turned out there’s a more modern library across the street, with books piled up on shelves, that looks more familiar.
Maybe it just seemed strange to me. What does your local library look like?
