Library Love

The Liverpool Central Library’s Picton Reading Room and Hornby Library stole my breath as I walked in. Silent, circular, massive, and incredibly beautiful. The dome ceiling arched above us and a wooden clock the size of an automobile loomed. Quaint staircases spiraled upwards with velvet ropes blocking off the top balcony. We walked the second, trailing our fingers along the books as we passed, stopping here and there to take a look (and a pic). This room was such a change from the rest of the modern library that it was completely unexpected. We didn’t want to leave.
