Photo-a-Day! Support your local library!

This is the coolest entrance to a public library! Any guesses where it is?!
When I was a kid, way back when, my friends and I would spend a whole Saturday afternoon wandering around the library (in Grand Rapids, Michigan, but that's not where this door is!). Maybe it was because the winters were so cold...maybe because we were just trying to get out of shoveling the driveway...or maybe it was because we loved the way old books smell...or because it was fun to read about things you'd never imagined before (I especially loved the big coffee table art books with lots of photographs, of course!)! Do kids do that anymore? Do adults do that anymore?!
Well, this is your encouragement for the your local library! Sure it's cool to read a book on a Kindle or an electronic tablet of some sort...but wouldn't it be a shame if your kids never knew the scent of old books in a library?!
