Listening to: Saint Dominic’s Preview – Van Morrison


Biblioteca De La Real Academia De La Lengua Madrid

There was a brief discussion on SALIN recently about librarians visiting libraries on holiday (although, actually, most people who responded to the original question said that no, they didn’t make a conscious effort to visit libraries on their holidays – SALIN can be really dispiriting sometimes [not a lot of romance there]). I do, not out of professional interest but because I love them.

(Not included in the above collection is the main public library in Prague, which has this amazing display, which looks just as cool from the outside of the tower [made of debited books – I wish our library would do something like that, instead of chucking them in the bin].)
