I love all kinds of libraries — from small-town libraries to huge university libraries. My wife and I regularly take road trips, so I thought it would be fun and possibly of interest to fellow library lovers to post pictures of libraries I encounter on our travels.
Sometimes libraries are closed when I stumble upon them and I’ve started titling those posts “Library Stops.” When I get to walk around inside a library and take interior shots, I title those posts “Library Visits.”
In an effort not to bother patrons or post photos in which individuals are easily identifiable, I often don’t take pictures of the entire interior of a library. As a result, these posts are not necessarily comprehensive library tours. If you should notice yourself in a photo and want me to blur your image, just let me know.
