52 Photos: Where I Would Take You

For this week’s prompt, Where Would I Take You, I had many thoughts. Seattle is beautiful and I have some iconic pictures of the Space Needle, Mt. Rainier, Pike Place Market, the downtown skyline, and plenty of pictures of birds, flowers and nature. I felt overwhelmed, because there are so many places I would take you.

I mentioned on Twitter yesterday that my adventure of the day was going to the library. One of my friends suggested I take pictures of the library to share. She didn’t even know I was still looking for a focus.

So, dear reader, I’m taking you to one of my favorite places in Seattle – my branch library. I hope you enjoy it.

The Seattle Public Library

Let’s start with this World Book set of encyclopedias. Anyone still use them? I remember them opening the door to the world for me.

I imagine so many worlds, beyond what is known. On the left are the science fiction and fantasy novels. Dip a toe in!

My mom loved to read to me and my brother and sisters when we were children. The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins was one of her favorites – and ours! A classic:

The library is where lights go on:

When I’m finished with my materials, I return them:

There are a few more pictures included in the full set. Thanks for letting me show you around my library!

      I’m glad I could transmit some of the joy and wonder that I experience regularly!

    My branch used to be your branch but then I moved downtown and I have the downtown public library which I madly adore. It’s seriously awesome for writing. 🙂 All tucked away at the top of the eyrie with the sky and buildings above you.

      My friend Misha works downtown. I should try writing down there some time. Writing in an aerie sounds so romantic!
