OUR NEW LIBRARY


Dreaming, I'm day dreaming again.


This is our new library 
which is slowly becoming a beautiful modern building 
before our very eyes.


Unusual design 
by 
international architects 
and locally 


That tree has my attention!
I figured the tree would be felled,
but lo and behold
it is mirrored in the glass.
Love it!


The sky, the tree, the bird flying over head,
everything seems to be as one.


The mammoth cranes are still lifting and manouevring
the materials that are coming together
for the opening in May 2014.


This video is self-explanatory 
giving you a full range view 
of this beautiful piece of architecture.


I guess I'm not day dreaming afterall,
because it is right in front of me.
Can't wait to sniff
on the sidewalk 
along side those enormous windows.

    1. It's so huge isn't it!

      We have a large growing urban community and the building will be well used!

      Especially the doggy door!

  3. One perfect place for me to visit, (HaHa) and look at all those wonderful books waiting to be read. Along with fabric, crosswords, and photography, books are there in the list of "my favourite things". Loved the virtual tour, and I see it will be open early 2014. Enjoy. Greetings from Jean.

    1. Yes Jean ~~ opening next May 2014 ~~~ can't open soon enough for us!

      The list of must-reads is growing and when the doors open we will jump into the line-up just to have a coffee/tea on the top level to see the panoramic view.

      So exciting!

      My dad says he worked in his university library one summer and got lost in the stacks!

      Don't believe me do you?!

      Winks!

  5. Well, that is comforting! Here I was thinking that libraries were going the way of the do-do.

    1. You and me thought that too!

      Our old library was almost embarrassing to walk into as a matter of fact we haven't stepped inside for over a decade +.

      Now we can't wait!!

    1. We love getting lost in libraries and have frequented many over the years.

      Thanks for the kind comment about my back seat view shot!

      This is one of my fave poses ~~ you know what? A lady was standing beside the car as we took these photos and soft talked me!

      Winks!

  10. What a beautiful library, Soph! I would be longing to sniff all those books in the stacks. I love the smell, feel, and look of REAL books! Hey, have you ever heard of the dog Harold in the Bunnicula books? Harold is a big guy with a touch of Russian wolfhound in him. He reads and writes and is a published author. He's great pals with the family cat Chester, and the two are constantly trying to deal with an orphaned bunny named Bunnicula. Bunnicula may or may not be a vampire bunny! Anyhow, I'll say it again, you too could be an author of books, Girl! Not that I should talk as I flounder along trying to write a book! Take care, Gurlfriend!

    1. Bunnicula Books?
      Sounds very scary, but I likes to scary wary peeps!
      I'll look them up very soon.
      Thanks for the heads up!
      So many publishers out there is the universe now wanting your money ~~ so being selective is an understatement!

      Check out my post on Saturday ~~~ you might like what you see ~~~ Sophie did!

  11. Very interesting pictures of a building coming together. SophieDoodle, I hope your'e not like Samson. Now that he's grownup, the only things he likes to chew on in our house are my books! I think he hopes to learn something, but he is for sure going about it the wrong way.

    1. Samson, you better be a good doggie I sure don't want IngerDoodle to hide all her books on you, especially How to Eat Treats!! LOL

      This library should be ready to visit next May, so excited.

      All the best Inger!

    1. Will definitely be going inside to check out this creation. The video gives you an idea but I know the real thing is so much better. The top level will be fun, a grand view of the entire city. Can't wait!
