North Idaho College Library

This small library has a lot to offer any student including an enthusiastic and capable staff.  I LOVE the gargoyles on the stacks.  These gargoyles are part of an art course assignment and change on a regular basis.  To see more of the library visit:

Catching Up

First I fell and destroyed my ankle.  Two surgeries and several months of not putting any weight on it then physical therapy and I am doing much, MUCH better.  Then my marriage exploded.  :( It's been difficult.   However during all of this I continued to look for innovation and once I was mobile again (look for the cane in the photos from 2011) I started taking photos and visiting libraries.  There is so much I want to write so stay tuned.

Visiting Wasilla Public Library

A cozy, packed, interesting, wonderful library. Lots of natural light, and just packed with books. My kind of library. Out behind the library was a farmers market where I was able to find a couple of wonderful art pieces. I loved this hand painted chair DSC06871
And ended up buying this blue bag. DSC06877

Griffith Observatory, Los Angeles

My friends took me to the Griffith Observatory for the Summer Solstice.  It was awesome.  I, of course, kept my eye out for interesting ways to honor donors. I was not disappointed.  If you want to look at other photos from that outing check them out here on my Flickr Album.

Donor Wall:

Absolutely wonderful art/education piece.  For more information about the piece go to

Tuzzy Consortium Library in Barrow AK

GORGEOUS public library way up north.  Be sure to check out all of my photos of this library via this Flickr Album.

Glass art piece depicting the year.

Art and the main desk

Lots of light and books to read.

Shorter shelving units are on wheels to make it possible to have large events.
