My Perfect Library
My entry into the Perfect Library Contest by the Kansas City Library, @kclibrary
Matilda would be perfect wall art for the children's section
via @womensvoicesRo Howe of Barraud Caterers reviews the new book, finds it "serious fun."
The Library at George Lucas' Skywalker Ranch - in a galaxy far, far away (actually down a long and windy road pretty close to home), I temped here during my roaring 20s, and going to the library was a highlight...the flower conservatory, too...and the restaurants (yes, plural)... ~Literary Mom

Love this! Every library should have a wall of magnetic poetry for people to play with! This is from the Oak Park Public Library in Oak Park, IL. (oppl.org)
My perfect library would have fun contests and activities like this one pinned by @Chris Lombardi "The BEST kind of volunteering - the Global Reading Challenge! Thanks Toni Myers @womensvoices."
The Little Free Library - a movement to build mini-book exchanges, promote literacy, and build community. Began in Madison, Wisconsin. #microlibrary alexismarlene
garden + library = everything via @New York Public Library... (not killing the garden, slightly tougher if you're me)
I would put these and other neat homemade bookmarks in a jar on the circulation desk. "easy bookmarks from fabric scraps via Alicia Alvers."
Activity: make bookmarks like these. Page Corner Bookmarks: Great idea for a literary craft project from Samantha (@slglms)
While part of me wants the Perfect Library to be a small, cozy local spot... I love the grandeur of this! Inside the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building. by Raymond Larose on Flickr, via @mrholle on Tumblr.
