    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

    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.
