Thursday's Things in a Row

Last week I took you on a tour of my library. I'm finishing up with the pictures this week. Just a note - I never even got to the second floor of the library! That's where all the non-fiction items are, plus magazines, and many, many computers for people to use.

A view from the fiction stacks

I am an avid reader, and I can say that it is RARE if this library doesn't have a book that I want to read!

There is this wonderful fireplace in the fiction section. I'm sure it has gas logs, but it gives off a nice ambiance of warmth! We came here in April and there was still a chill in the air, so I got to experience sitting by the fire. There are about 20 cushy chairs with lamps sporadically placed between them in front of the fireplace. The chairs have a "table" that slides up and across your lap for a computer or writing desk if you should prefer to use one. Plug ins are available every few feet, and wire less is available throughout the library.


Here is a close up of that beautiful artwork of glass in a row above the fireplace.



And finally, here's LOTS of things in a row. This is the check-out line. We were lucky enough to be next in line, but sometimes there can be SEVERAL people ahead of us. There can be anywhere from 2 to 4 circulation clerks working at one time.

Even though I promised the Library Director that I wouldn't take pictures of people, I couldn't help it for this one. I don't think you'd be able to identify anyone, though, as their backs are to my camera. Whew!





What 'cha got?

What a great looking library! That is certainly a great place to find things in a row and some good reading materials.

Your photos have reminded me that our new library opened last week and I have not gone to check it out yet.

This is my first time joining in your "Things in a Row" meme.

What a beautiful library! The one near me is probably 1/4 of that size. And, it looks old and worn out. I love to read as well but have been using my Nook instead of borrowing books. I know I can borrow electronically from the library on my Nook so maybe it's time to renew my card.

You know that place sounds like heaven to me! I need to go back to your previous post and see if you put a link to that library. Will you be posting more pictures or do they have some on their site?
