Talk About Your Giant Library Collection!

Check out these pictures which I borrowed from a site called Deputy Dog. They’re from libraries under construction in Cardiff (wherever Cardiff is!) and Kansas City, Missouri. While the libraries are under construction, the construction site is being covered with cool boarding painted to resemble giant bookshelves filled with books. Instead of creating an eyesore while the new buildings are under construction, the cities instead created giant works of art! Bravo!

    Just wanted to let you know that the city of Cardiff is the capital city of Wales, which is a principality within the UK. As an English teacher here I can tell you that Welsh people love their literature and our new library sums up everything about Cardiff- unique and beautiful!
