here is the view from the library's top level available to the public...i have to say, it was enough to make me dizzy, i am not good with heights, and it seemed very high up! this is the tenth floor, looking down on the 2nd floor, i believe. very spooky! you can see more about the library here, the site tells you about the building, and has a link for a virtual tour also. there were lots of computers in this place...more computers than i have ever seen anywhere, and they were all being used by people at the time we were there.
they had a little gift shop too, and i found a nice calendar book for next year, that had pages that were all from nancy drew bookcovers. i read most of the nancy drew books when i was a kid, and i have several that i have collected over the years, before they started to be pretty hard to find, and when i did find them, they were pretty pricey. (i was always looking for the older ones with the blue covers). anyway, it was the last one they had, and i figured i would not find another so i got it...my day planners are my "brain" for the most part these days. if it isn't written down, fuggetaboutit. i know i will, anyway!
