I Love Libraries. I love the feel of a book in my hands. I love the new discoveries I always find in libraries.
For some reason, I have been writing bucket lists of many different things: places to go, people to see, etc. Today I thought I'd share some of the libraries located in the United States that are on my bucket list of libraries. These libraries made my list not only because of their holdings that are of interest to me but because of the buildings themselves. In no particular order:
Located in Baltimore, Maryland the library opened in 1878. It has five tiers of ornamental cast-iron balconies, which rise dramatically to the skylight 61 feet above the floor.
An eight story, concrete structure located at the head of a canyon near the center of the campus. The lower two stories form a pedestal for the six story, stepped tower.
I Love, Love, Love this library!
I have been a member of DAR since 2007 and have never been to our library. Heck I have never been to Washington, DC!
Now this is the kind of study environment I can learn to love!
I know I am missing some great libraries out there. Which ones are on your bucket list?
