Theme Day-March, 2011-My Favorite Part of Town-Central Library

I cannot tell a lie: This is another "illegal" post (according to CDP rules).  I am still in St. Paul, Mn 'til I fly away to Mazatlán, México in 8 days.  During the past few years I've been dividing my time between three fabulous places: St. Paul, México and Santa Fe so....I'v posted a theme day photo for each place.  Forgive me?

This sculpture is in the Southwest Reading room in the downtown central Santa Fe Library.  I do not neglect any of the other wonderful places in town, but this is the first place I visit when I hit Santa Fe.  It's a treasure.  After loading myself down with lots of regional literature books, I visit Canyon Road check Randy's Santa Fe Daily Photo for today, the art galleries, historical sights and many fine little restaurants where the locals hang out.  First things first, though, literature to feed my soul.

  2. Hi Kate,
    believe it or not, i have not been to this library! i should go! i tend to end up at Collected Works, where i buy too many books that i could be checking out from the library! how long will you be in Mazatlan? you are lucky to have such an adventurous & varied life!

  9. Rules are often arbitrary and sometimes must be ignored or disobeyed!

    You're in good company historically!

    I also love libraries and that horse reminds me of our painted horses (Horse Fever) in Ocala!

  20. The SF library has always been one of my favorite places in town. The SW reading room is a perfect quiet spot.
