It feels like an old church?! An It also has a European feeling, too!

Interesting thing about the library's ceiling. It's actually not made of wood. That would've been too heavy. They made it out of a composite material and stained it like wood. My memory is a bit fuzzy but I think it was a composite made of reeds.

When we were considering moving out of Pasadena last year, the library was on my list of "things I would miss".

@Ann - I admire the cork floors every time I go in. So beautiful (and quiet!).

We are very fortunate to have such great civic buildings in Pasadena.
