This is a public library....somewhere. What I like about it is the way the wooden piers push out into the reading room. The way the piers have little glass windows in their ends, as if they were little churchs of knowledge where people would worship ideas. The little gabled roofs over each pier, as if reaching upward toward more knowledge, more understanding. The lovely carved rosettes on the piers, and attached to the metal spindles of the balustrades... accolades for the ideas, both successful and failed, which lie within the tomes they contain.
