My Perfect Library

My entry into the Perfect Library Contest by the Kansas City Library, @kclibrary

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

HOLY COW!!! I won!!!! Congrats to @ewillse, champion of our Pin Your Perfect Library Pinterest contest. #NLW12 Runners-up: @Abbe Wood, @Brook Balentine-Alfino, @Leslynn Gregory, @Jody Donohue, @Erin Hogan, @Madelaine Gogol, @Lindy Rhodes, @Vanessa Cox, @JediKitty www.kclibrary.org...

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."

via BEA I also like this because it's purple...

The Little Free Library - a movement to build mini-book exchanges, promote literacy, and build community. Began in Madison, Wisconsin. #microlibrary alexismarlene

Very cool! Visitor Desk made of books. From the TU Delft Architecture Bibliotheek

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)

For the wall color. Would have accents of color peeking out from behind bookshelves.

I would love to feature book sculpture art from the mysterious Edinburgh artist.

I like the colors and layout, but would replace the TV with a poster, if it were in my library.... via @Charmaine Ng Wonder if this homeliness could be replicated in public or school spaces.

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.
