Where is that Library?

I sometimes tell people that I went through my junior and senior year at college not visiting the university library with any regularity. I knew lots of people who went there to study, but I preferred to study in my room. With beer. It's not that I didn't get books from there, it just wasn't the place I wanted to study.

Last month was National Library Card Month. I am a bit ashamed to admit that I don't have a library card. It is something that I really should rectify. In my defense, I don't have the time to read like I used to - I am currently reading a book that I started long ago and long after it would have been due back to the library. I do know where the library is, our local branch is on my way home. In fact, I just brought a box of books in to donate just the other day.

Do you know where your local library is? This site can help. As stated here before, my first "indoor" job was working at the public library, which recently celebrated its 50th year of service to the town. Now that I think about it, I worked there about thirty years ago. But I'm not going to think about that anymore.

It's possible that if my local library looked like this, I might go there more often. This is a concept for the "Wall of Books" at the Stockholm Public Library.

That wall of books is really cool. It reminds me of the wall of doors in Monsters, Inc.
