Saturday -- the day before it snowed -- it rained. My husband wanted to read a book held by the public library in Richmond Hill, a big town just north of Toronto. What better place to spend a few hours on a watery Saturday than in a library, right?
It was my first visit to this building. Although I LOVE books I didn't want to get too excited about any on this library's shelves because I didn't have borrowing privileges there. So instead I scanned the bookshelves, checked out the periodicals room, looked at at all the artwork on the walls, even looked out the windows and took a photo of one of the few colourful trees left in Ontario this autumn.
Then on my way to the top floor I noticed this huge pencil coming down through the ceiling. But no! It was a light fixture. I just had to get a shot of that!
Then on my way back down to the first floor, my nosy camera peered through these windows and took this shot. I was intrigued by the glass and not a solid wall on the inside of the library separating the stairs from the room.
I was impressed with this library. East Gwillimbury's is much, much smaller. In fact, you can probably put my local branch inside the space you can see through the windows. OK, I'm only kidding. But it IS SMALL. I buy a lot of books as a result.
