Kristin Hildum. Virginia Beach, VA.  	 My family had our library made as a Birthday gift! As a school librarian it delights me to see people stop, browse, take and share. It's located near my garden so in the spring and summer I enjoy watching neighbors stop by while I'm gardening. The library is located within a couple of miles of two large beaches. It is stocked with a nice variety of (mostly) fiction and children's books.

"Architecture firm MVRDV designed this magnificent library called Book Mountain, literally a mountain of books covered by a glass shell. The public library, located in Spijkenisse near Rotterdam, sits in the market square and serves as an invitation for visitors to come in and take a gander at the giant selection of interesting books shelved within the five-story structure."

Day 30 (PM): Cooking With Gas  After visiting Fox Glacier and Franz Josef Elisa and I continued our push toward Queenstown.

Given our limited budget Elisa and I opted not to get a hotel for the night.  We decided to camp.  Unfortunately there were no free or low cost camping options available in the area.  We instead decided to sleep in the car.  Before…

This was a children's book very near to my heart as a child, and is now very difficult to find ANYWHERE.  Someone has nicely published the whole book on their blog, thus allowing today's readers to enjoy it as i did as a child.

The book was, of course, very popular in my childhood neighborhood library, located right across the street from Tompkins Square Park, where the book takes place.
