Don’t miss this post by a true bibliophile and library lover! (Is there a word for library lover?!) His experience of the Boston Public Library makes me want to move to that city. I’ve found the Free Library of Philadelphia to be a bit off-putting. There’s a great deal of security, and the room in which we have held discussions was uncomfortable, the bathroom situation just scary… I understand renovations are underway. I hope it won’t feel so embattled when they are complete.
