Finally!




I finally got around to going to a library!
I didnt hae a whole lot of time, but this is the International Children's Library in Ueno Park, and it is totally awesome!
I asked at the front desk about trying to get a librarian exchange program going, and I got to go and talk with somebody in the office, and had a nice chat with him, but they said they didn't have the space or funds to do it.
I would have taken more pictures of the building, but you cant take pictures of the inside.
The building was renovated in 2000 with the help of the famous Japanese architect Ando Tadao.


I hope this was kinda ok!

all of that for children, and they don't have space??? Wow. Were it & Central Library PDX built around the same time---very similar with the windows. Cool.

Thanks, Peter! What a huge building - and what a brave fellow for going in and talking to them.

I like your hair, too.

Have fun,

Barbara
