What beautiful room! Would make even a reluctant reader take up a book. Ans that's the truth!

Nice photo, I remember during my college days we would go there to study. We would fill out the book request slip and sit down and a library employee would go get the books for us. Not sure if it still works that way.

Great shot of this amazing room.
I can feel the quiet in here. I love libraries and coffee houses.
Funny thing...my husband likes to read at a table and I....I love to read all curled up on the couch with some comfy pillows and a throw....and a cup of green tea or hazelnut coffee.
