  1. I love looking at interesting buildings. Of course I live in a boring late sixties building with zero personality….😆

  2. Thank you — and I can say the same thing. I’ve been in libraries that are more like homes, and I peruse the used books sections in every second hand and antique store I go through. Reading will never die!

  3. I love interesting libraries and this is a great selection. I have spent many happy hours at the Vancouver Public Library. I even taught a course there three summers ago. An amazing place.
