I have found my new Home Library, which may serve me as well as a Home Pub, at least in the day-time.

I've been to the Franklin library a few times but it's not my town's library, so I usually went to my town one. But my old bully's mother used to work there so most of my memories of the place are being bullied. Well, that and finding Tamora Pierce's works--so it's a place of conflict.

This library I've only entered a few times. It has some amazing rooms! Goodness. And what feels like secret passageways, paintings everywhere... Then, it is technically speaking the first public library in the US (according to this site). It's like a Muggle-friendly Magical Library; I keep expecting Irma to walk into the room at any time.

This room has a set of paintings that spans the whole room with lots of topless lasses with long, luscious hair. The one with a bun, turned away from the viewer, looks rather like Minerva by profile, if only the hair were black rather than brown.

I wasn't ready to attach myself to this place before, but now I'm finding it's just the right time. I'm going to go explore more and then sit down for a good read!

(I've picked up Terrier and Bloodhound, so it looks as though I may be adventuring back into Tammy-land before I go Rowling through Hogwarts again.)

Iiii want my friend to read Terrier so she's caught up with me so I can read Bloodhound, which I still have on loan! *Impatient Kiwi is Impatient.* We're going to be reading through the series together. And then the rest of Tammy's books. :D

Sounds like a very nice place to spend time. I'm glad that you found it!

I love the Franklin library! Hops up and down!!! (probably not news to you) I've spent a lot of time in the room with the paintings of topless women. Did you venture down the little stairway that comes out next to the children's room? I've discovered that secretish stairway before.

Also the beech tree in front of the Dean College building next door to it is excellent for sitting under and reading.

By secretish stairway, do you mean the staff stairway that comes out behind the desk? That one I've found. I do intend to explore more. :B

I do love that old beech tree. :D

Hmmm, no I think it's another secretish stairway. It comes out in the hallway before the children's room with the children's room on your right. I like how the young adult room is a little bit of a cave if I remember correctly.
