Going up!

Prescott Valley's new town library is steeling itself for the town's readers.

Funny. You'd think a building that used to house prim little ladies whispering "shhhhh" to noisy patrons wouldn't be made out of steel.

Anyway, here's a look at the project, which will also house some classrooms for the P.V. campus of Yavapai College.

Somehow its very hard to imagine a Library emerging from the skeleton you picture but no doubt it will These days it is just nice to think of new Librarys being built & of people using them .
PS Have a feeling Meggie was maybe meaning celsius with her 34 .

Henri - Someone sent me a series of photos of strange buildings around the world. One of them is the Kansas City, Missouri, public library. I don't know if it's real or not but I'll post it to the blog.

34 Celsius equals 93 Fahrenheit. That doesn't sound very cool to me.

Well, I was a bit vague about the weather. It was 34 one day, 15 the next!! NZ is more inclined to get such extremes than Oz, but we have been having very odd weather lately!

I agree, it is nice to think Libraries still exist in this electronic age.

Meggie - I should have realized it was Celsius. Like the Metric system, only the U.S. of A. clings to our new/old ways.
