FINALLY! our first visit to our FANTASTIC NEW LIBRARY

FINALLY! OUR NEW LIBRARY
{my new fave} 
a remodel in 1987 is the version we had when we moved here.
2009 ground was broken on the current remodel.
 we watched it being built from the ground up & it was finished not to long after we left town for 3 months!!!remember
what an unbelievable transformation.
Here is the BEAUTIFUL NEW & IMPROVED GREEN REMODEL!!!
*WARNING*
 this post will never do this library remodel justice! there are sooo many little amazing details, artistic nuances & clever GREEN state-of-the-art design features that would take many posts!
seeing is believing is a MAJOR understatement.
amazing artwork outside the building by a local artist
this is my all time fave used bookstore!
 the spiffy new Friends of the Library Bottomshelf Bookstore.
it's now located right outside the entrance. i have purchased almost all my books from here in the last few years.
 popular titles even requested popular titles from 10 cents & the most $3(they let you fill out a request form & so far i have gotten all but 1).
these were our first steps inside.
STUNNED!
our own section!!!
we live in the Avocado Capital of the World. no really it's true.
giant hanging fruit are a nod to the agriculutural roots of our community.
Ms. 12 yo's mouth dropped!
she's all over "her spot". it has a Wii, the coolest furniture, a TV & much much more...
another thru the glass shot
artistic native plant Quiet Garden.
wish i could have gotten the amazing living green roof.

we literally spend hours & hours in our new library. browsing books, bringing in our school work, exploring still, or just sitting in awe & appreciating.
