Ohhhhhhhh! I love your many different mosaics. I wish we had such beautiful old libraries, but unfortunately ours are all much more modern. Thanks for sharing these with us though.

You must have been to the Boston Public Library...what a treasure. I love libraries, too, and the ones you've shared with us are delightful.

This is a magnificent post Karen, of a place where we all could get lost for hours and become children again, and at the same time, grow in our minds! BEAUTIFUL PLACES! Anita

Hello Mary,

I love the library too and those that reside inside old old building have such mystery and charm.

I love all the different sorts of mosaics you you mind sharing which program you use to make them? ♥

I'm running late today but I'd love for you to visit me.

Stephanie ♥

One of my favorite online libraries is the Library of Congress - a virtual treasure trove. It's easy to get lost there for hours on end!

I have always loved libraries. I remember going to the library as a little girl and walking out with my stack of books, as many as I could carry! That was the high point of my week. I raised my girls with regular trips to our library, in fact I remember my youngest being in her baby carrier and her sister 2 years old helping the librarians move our little library tucked in half of the fire station to the big new library our community built. We are still on a first name basis with our dear librarians. These are such lovely buildings, I would have to look for a hidden nook somewhere if I were in one of them:>) Do you think these gorgeous old buildings have some hidden nooks?
