A good library will never be too neat, or too dusty, because somebody will always be in it, taking books off the shelves and staying up late reading them.
Lemony Snicket, Horseradish: Bitter Truths You Can’t Avoid (via observando)
Down time on the road. Tiny, strange little town. I was road weary and wanted sometime alone.
Literally nothing in the town but a gas station store, bar and…a library.
Lovely librarian and I struck up a conversation, talked about some classics and she smiled at me.
Led me down stairs to a small windowless room stacked to the ceiling on all sides with every issue of TIME, LIFE, EBONY and countless other magazine runs from the 30s, 40s, 50, 60s, 70s, 80s.
It was a time machine and probably one of favorite days ever.
