Confession: I have a thing for libraries. On my computer, the screen saver scrolls through number of pictures of libraries that take my breath away. I dream of spending time in beautiful places like that. Today I found another one! I discovered the Fernie public library. I know. I will say it so you don't have to: I am such a nerd.
What a beautiful building though!! It was open today from 1-5 pm. It was a beautiful place to spend the afternoon!! It filled my bucket!
They had me with the arts and crafts style furniture.
Look at those beautiful wooden shelves, and the huge comfy arts and crafts style chairs.
Doors with glass windows. Everything was real wood.
Stairs leading to the metal fire escape.
The view from the stairwell on to the main floor.
I love that the floors and the carpet are well worn.
The kids area of the library. That little fort is made of books. They didn't even look that old or worn out.
Closer view of the amazing chairs.
A book quilt hanging on the wall. So amazing!!
And just like a good library should, it taught me a lot about Fernie. Amazing stories. I hope you can read them in these pics.
....I really should go see how my children are doing.
So long Fernie Public Library. You are a kindred spirit!!
