Libraries...what’s not to love!

"I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.” -Jorge Luis Borges, Argentine poet

The new Los Gatos Library finally opened last Saturday. It culminates a 20 million dollar project for the town; 30,000 square feet of books, a technology lab, children’s area, computer bar, and even an outdoor patio.

How lucky am I to live a few blocks from a brand new library? Very lucky indeed! I’m pretty stoked! In fact, if we ever move, I’ll make sure the real estate stats sheet lists “walking distance to local library” as one of the highlights of our home!

"Book lovers will understand me, and they will know too, that part of the pleasure of a library lies in its very existence.” - Jan Morris
