It's no surprise that I love libraries! I told you about moving around a lot, but probably did not mention that along with those travels, I managed to accumulate four college degrees as well as homeschool our kids part of that time; therefore, I have been inside my share of libraries across the country.
The worst library I ever been in was a law library in the basement of the local courthouse where I spent many hours while taking some paralegal courses. This was before the internet and databases such as LexisNexis or Westlaw. There were no windows and it was musky in there! I would go at night after work and I would be the only one there - eerie! I still shiver thinking about it.
The best library (at least aesthetically) I ever visited was the William T. Young Library at University of Kentucky in Lexington. I was blessed enough to go along on one of my husband's business trips for a week stay in Lexington. Since I had an assignment due the following week, I visited this library and spent time there as part of an assignment for my Technical Services class.
