Day 107 - The Reading Place

We shouldn't teach great books;
we should teach a love of reading.

~ B. F. Skinner ~


I love this statue at the entrance to the C. Burr Artz Library in Frederick. It epitomizes the joy of reading and reminds me of my own times at the library when I was a child.

The lower section in the above photo is the Children's Area of the library.

I agree - I love the statue, too. :)

Great statue, and I love libraries. Spent big chunk of my childhood in one.

Great statue. I hate people reading over my shoulder, though - I'd rather my kids sat next to me or on my lap (but they're too big now!).
