I snapped the above pic the other day while I was sitting at the stop sign. After I got married and moved to Edinburgh, one of the things that impressed me most about my new town was its library(Edinburgh Wright-Hageman Public Library). It surprised me with its charm, the reading garden w/a cute little fountain w/rubber duckies in the summer, and the Christmas trees they line the front windows with in December. And oh, yeah, the books! ;)
I've Googled a few other libraries, and found some that I'm sure the town's inhabitants are proud to call their own.
Mirror Lake Library, St. Petersburg, FL. I really want them to have a pet alligator for some reason!
E.C. Weber Fraser Public Library, Fraser, MI. I want to sit at that table in the garden while reading a historical romance- pretty!
And in the fairness of picturesque library diversity, this stunner is in Milan, the Biblioteca Sormani. And, huh, what can I say? It looks magical... *strives to tamp down library lust... fails.*
