august will be the last month of the sky is big in pasadena.
i have accepted a position at salford mennonite church in harleysville, pennsylvania. we will be moving in september, so august will be my farewell month to the city of pasadena. when we moved here from virginia i posted a list of the ten things i would miss most about harrisonburg. i figured that would be a good way to end our time here, so each day i will be doing one final rundown of life in this great city. i have prepared two lists - ten things i won't be sad to leave behind (which thankfully, are already posted), and twenty of my absolute favorite things about pasadena. we have arrived at my top ten things about life in pasadena.
the public library system in pasadena is extensive with countless programs happening at ten different locations across the city. we've been fortunate to live near two locations - the beautiful central library (shown above) and our local villa parke location. books can be requested from any branch to be picked up at whatever location is convenient. the main central library has frequent art displays, a small used book store, and a coffee shop (among other things). I will certainly miss the library.
