I fell in love today. With who you ask? The Burlingame Public Library. Located in the shady streets of the posh Bay Area city of Burlingame, this library has a lot of offer, and I don’t mean just with books. The architecture of the building is amazing, and inspiring; a unique Mission style, combining elements of Tuscan and Spanish architecture. There are high ceilings, deeply rich, dark wood panels. The children’s room has some beautiful art murals of Rapunzel, Jack and the Beanstalk.
My first encounter was with the Burlingame community room for a library book sale. Today, we met again, and this time I wasn’t being badgered away from stacks of books by my boyfriend. The building is from 1931, although the library was first founded in 1909.
