The Most Beautiful Libraries

I can’t possibly be the only person who likes to visit libraries while on vacation. Not only are libraries wonderful places to sit down and relax to get out of the heat or cold, they’re great places to find out what’s going on in the area. They provide free wifi and you can see some beautiful architecture.

Over the years, we stopped in the Denver Public Library so I could work while on vacation.

In Taos, we got out of the heat and used wifi at the Taos Public Library.

In New York City Public Library we marveled at the architecture and furnishings in the library where Claudia and Jamie researched Michelangelo in The Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler.
