    The third floor landing is really cool. They host things that go on here. The Sand Mandala that they hosted this year was so beautiful. I took pictures of the stunning work the buddist monks did!

    Just on break long enough to enjoy the lights around the Central Library. We must all vote yes on levy 26-125 on 5/15 to keep the lights on in the library. It's books, films, music and great jobs!

    You can make a research appointment w a librarian and they'll help you find all the info you'd need on a given topic. Best resource for a college kid :)

    Always great to swing by the Central Library on the way to work (just 11/2 blocks) Lets save all libraries and good union jobs by voting on 5/15 for levy 26-125. They're ours to lose, unless we vote.

    Do not use the restroom. I've tried 10x and there's always a homeless guy taking a nap every time I go.

    You gotta check out the ornate, etched staircase. Reminds me of the artwork from the treasure hunting book by Kit Williams published in the 70's.

    Taking the elevator to the third floor is advised if to have bad knees or aren't in marathon shape.

    The nook in the records room on the second floor is the best study spot.

    After you walk up Lisa's staircase, be sure to inquire about the writer's room, a little office/hidey hole for people working on bona fide writing projects.

    The Friends Bookstore is cute. Check out the tree in the kids' room and the end panel on the shelves near the computers.
