A Book Lover's Library

A friend sent me an e-mail with photos of strange buildings from around the world. Included was one that claimed to be a public library in Kansas City, Missouri. Here's the photo. It is truly an amazing bit of ingenuity . . . if it's real. Anyone actually seen it who can verify its accuracy?

Update: I went to the web and researched this. It's real! The books are actually on the face of the parking garage for the library. You can see many more pictures of this amazing library . . both inside and out . . by running the slide show here.


  1. Far freakin' out! Almost as good as our mountain lion. I wonder how they selected the titles that are on display...

  2. Well, there's a bio of Truman, who was a Missourian, and a book by Mark Twain, who also was a Missourian. Don't know about the others.

  3. Wow! Very impressive! Far better than ugly concrete or bricks.

  4. Magic -- What a great way to present a Library . Have you any idea what your Library is to look like when finished ?

  5. Meggie - Yes, I was stunned when I saw the first pictures.

    Henri - Much more like the Starship Enterprise!
