I love libraries. More than 30 years ago, I went to Manhattan for the first time on business. And one of my goals--for pleasure--was to go to the Humanities and Social Sciences Library to see the two famous stone lions, Patience and Fortitude, that guard it, as well as the main reading room.
Over the weekend, I went to the Beverly Hills Library, which is my favorite library in Los Angeles. Of course, I go to check out books, and they have a terrific collection. But, what makes it special is the architecture. It's right behind the City Hall, which is a real treasure.
Actually, I'd intended to write about some of the books I picked up. But, it's kind of fun to post about places I enjoy going.
P.S. When I was responding to CK's comment, I realized that I had loved visiting The Morgan Library & Museum as well. And I never thought to ask: If you have a favorite library, share the link with us. It would be fun to fantasize about seeing new places...if only in our minds.
A Caveat: I posted this piece early in the morning. But this afternoon I realized that for new readers, I may have to explain why I write about wellness activities that would seem to have nothing to do with bipolarity or any other medical malady. That will be the topic of tomorrow's post.
