#13 - A Library

I was excited to see a place that I often visit on Rinda's 2012 Summertime Photography Scavenger Hunt: #13 - A Library. If you've been reading my blog for any length of time, you know I love to read and am usually reading several books at a time. Sometimes I buy those books, many times they are given to me as gifts, and often I check them out of our local library. Here's the front entrance to our library as my fourth contribution to the scavenger hunt.

Our library has two floors filled with wonderful books, movies, magazines, computers and meeting rooms. I might walk in the doors empty handed, but it's rare that I walk out without something new to read!

Since the front entrance is not adjacent to the parking lot and is used mainly as a drop off point, I use this entrance when I'm searching for a new book or attending a monthly book club meeting.

I'm thoroughly enjoying the scavenger hunt and seeing the other participant's photos - it's fun to see what's the same and what's different in various states and countries around the globe!

There's still time to be in the draw for this month's Pass the Book - click here to check it out.

What a great looking library! I finally took a photo of ours this morning after forgetting to the last two trips to the library.
