    Wow–love the architectural lines! This seems to be a refurbished building, no? What was it’s original purpose?

    The older part of the building is the original circulation desk/reading rooms of the original library- the modern, curved 6 story addition was built on the back of the property and the atrium built to connect the two. There was a lot of intense restoration done to the original part of the building. From up close, on the street, it looks much the same as it did in the 1960’s. Stand back a block, and you can see the whole addition looming behind the original facade.

    Wow, shelves full of Kimbles…;)

    Nice pictures, nice architecture.

    No one minded you snapping away inside a library?

    I didn’t get one glance askance. I thought there might be a problem, but apparently, the position of the library is that as long as you don’t disturb other patrons, photos are OK.
