    When I hiked part of the Appalacian Trail in 2004 I made sure to stop in at libraries whenever I could! Two that stand out for me are

    Melbourne, Australia.

    My husband and I toured the Seattle library when we were there on vacation in October. We wandered around like slack-jawed yokels. We’re lucky if there are actual books in our local library. Our governor started a reading campaign called “Read Y’all”.

    I heart the Hale Library at Kansas State University. I was an English major, and spent many, many hours in the dusty old “stacks”. That old paper smell, the crack when you open a book, the quiet, the WORDS, the moment when you find the exact right information you’re looking for…aaaaaaaaahhhhh…

    WHY did I not become a librarian?

    That library in Peckham is amazing. It has big pods inside for reading or studying in, have a google and see. A few years ago a 10 year old boy called Damilola Taylor was stabbed outside his house in Peckham, and the last footage of him was captured on the library’s CCTV, showing him skipping across the courtyard on his way home from school. Goes to show just how crummy the area can be, and how much of an asset the library is.

    As if I needed another reason to love you! I’m a librarian and I could kiss you on the lips. But you’re very far away. Thank you!

    The relatively new Salt Lake City Library is simply stunning.
    I can almost directly correlate my love of books to my mom taking us kids to the library at least once a week. In my life, the library means comfort, security, and most of all, knowledge.

    Fun post subject – I forget that it was World Book day yesterday but posted about books anyway. I looove libraries so much!
