Stephanie, my RocketScientist, and I went to the Bookmobile yesterday and the librarian and I got to talking about old library buildings, because he is going to go work at the one in Tacoma.
Boy did I get smacked upside the head with a memory....I remember the children's book floor in the Berkeley California main library. I remember the wood...shelves, benches, railings that 'divided' up areas. I even remember the smell of that wood and the books! I also remember my mom reading Curious George and Madeline books to me. We went to the library a lot!
