    What an amazing space to celebrate the freedom of information and the power of words.

  • Patty says:

    Amazing space–not to mention voting for money for libraries. What a community.

  • Dave says:

    Wow! That’s the scale on which they created libraries in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. What an investment in the future, and how beautifully realized in the present! It’s a must see.

    Holy goodness. I’m a bit intimidated by all that space! I kinda like a more intimate library, but that’s just me. That raised-letter floor is fantastic.
