Patricia There is something about a library. Books on a shelf just waiting to be cracked open. Endless possibilities! The smell of paper, ink and dust. Home.

What could be better than a book discussing the library? Library design. Different types of libraries. How the books are organized, what kinds of books are displayed, who has access to the books? The perfect setting for perusing and reading. I enjoyed getting to know more about one of my favorite places on earth. I have always enjoyed visiting different libraries around the world, public and private, but now my curiosity has been aroused and when I visit a new collection of books I will be paying more attention to all the little details.

Very enjoyable read.
