Local Library Tour!

Posted by on October 5, 2011

I stopped by my local library yesterday. It was a lovely day, the sun was shining and my library is located in the middle of a beautiful park, so I was sitting in the sunshine reading Where She Went by Gayle Forman. I finished that one off and I thought since I didn’t have anything planned for the day I’d wander in and see what they had…. not that I don’t seriously have enough to read at home. lol :)

I don’t know if my library differs much from other libraries in Australia or even around the world, but I know that as a book addict these things interest me, so I thought I’d share some pictures!

The park where my library is located

The Gazebo near my library

These are some of the YA shelves. There is about another three the same size behind where I was standing, so all the YA shelves are probably twice what you see here. I’m thinking this might be considered small especially compared to libraries in other countries? No idea! There’s a seperate childrens area.

Bit closer up on one of the shelves.

And my “borrowed” pile. Seriously. I can’t help myself. lol More on these books when I do IMM on Sunday!

I’d be really keen to see pictures of other libraries around the world! Have you posted something similar? Link me up in the comments below!

    What a beautiful setting for a library.
    Your library looks about the same size as my local one. We have a much bigger one in town, but the little one is much friendlier :-)

    How pretty! Your local library blows mine out of the water, haha, the only park near mine is a dog park because the animal shelter is across the parking lot.

    WOW - I work in a library in UK and our YA section is miniscule compared to that.
    Those shelves are my dream come true. So big!!!
    Our Children’s section is really big but our YA is tiny.
    I’ll try and take some pics sometime to show.

      Wow! See I thought maybe our section was small? The other library nearby does have a smaller YA section, but this is our main library in my city. I’d absolutely love to see pics!
