Our area's new library has a quiet room. It is awesome. Actually, the whole library is awesome with it's wooden ceiling and curvy shelves, new tables, and upholstered chairs with lovely fabrics and design. Everything is new and crisp. But I love the quiet room the best. Super-comfy chairs. Lamps with a perfect glow. There is even a gas log fireplace in there! What more could a girl ask for? Oh, did I mention there's a coffee shop on the first level. *sigh* It's on the other side of town from us so not terribly convenient but I'm already thinking of how to tweek our route so that we wind up close by once a week at least. Olivia says her favorite part is the teen room. She was dazzled by the shiny new Macs, I think. If you are local, please go and visit, sit in the quiet room, and take a deep breath for me.
