Columbus Public Library
Columbus, you have something to be very proud of!
Again, it has taken me a while to visit the main public library on Grant Street. Many people have suggested that I take the kids there, that they have a great kids' section, that there is an art gallery, that the library got Museum of the Year award.
Believe it or not, my librarian friend in Santa Cruz praised about this library even before we packed our boxes to leave town.
We are lucky to be only a couple of miles away from this beautiful place. I was a little dubious about parking only to be pleasantly surprised that there is a designated parking garage for the library, and that it is free for the first hour (and only 50 cents for 2 hours!).
The kids were excited at the selection of books. I was blown away by the architecture, the art gallery, the natural light that comes inside.
And I didn't even go upstairs to where all the books are.
I am setting up a date with myself to go there just to really get to know it some more.
