I love libraries. All kinds, from small-town libraries to huge university libraries. My wife and I regularly take road trips, so I thought it would be fun and possibly of interest to fellow book and library lovers to post pictures of libraries I encounter on our travels.
Sometimes libraries are closed when I stumble upon them and I’ve started titling those posts “Library Stops.” When I get to walk around inside a library and take interior shots, I title those posts “Library Visits.” I’m currently editing earlier posts to reflect this distinction.
I try not to bother patrons or post photos in which individuals are easily identifiable. As a result, I often don’t take pictures of the entire interior of a library, so these posts are not necessarily comprehensive library tours. On that note, if you should notice yourself in a photo and want me to blur your image, just let me know.
As of April 2018, I’m updating the links to the posts so that they refer to posts here on WordPress rather than my old Blogger site (its the same content, but once everything is transferred correctly I plan on deleting the old site).
