This weekend I flew into Boston for a really lovely wedding in Western Massachusetts, so I wanted to share pics of few East Coast libraries. I love how some have a cozy, quaint feel and others are nice and grand.
Want to show me your library shots? Send pics to firstname.lastname@example.org and I might include them in a future library post.

I’ve been a little obsessed with library shots lately. I’d love to find more great libraries, so if you have library shots from your hometown or places you’ve visited, email them to me at email@example.com and I’ll try to include them in a post on that library!
Today I’m loving the Seattle Public Library…so colorful!
