I was very fortunate growing up to have such an amazing library just a 15 minute walk from my house. With a huge children’s section with books, movies, games and even stuffed animals to check out.
As I grew older, I needed a place to study out of the house. My favorite place to go was to one of the many tiny nooks in the library. They offered privacy – to conceal the horrible sappy romance novel covers or to get away from almost all noise.
My favorite time to go to the library was when it was raining. The third floor of the library has a huge skylight that makes the most wonderful noise when it rains.
The building itself is well thought out and beautifully designed. The interior is luxurious and with fireplaces all over the place, it is a great place to warm up during the long winter months in Chicago.
