On the afternoon of my arrival in Stockholm, cactus_rs met me at a cafe after work so we could have some cheap and tasty risotto followed by a stroll up Sveavagan to the Stockholm Public Library. The building is nice enough from the outside, but it’s the interior that inspires awe. I would give a lot to be reincarnated as this library’s resident cat.
We arrived about 10 minutes before closing, so it was a bit of a mad dash round the place with my camera whilst cactus_rs hunted up a few titles for checkout.
View from the first balcony level toward the big clock. The time reads one minute prior to closing.
“Hiss” means lift/elevator.
Fantasy fiction, anyone?
Pleased to see there are two copies of Dracula available.
Lots of last-minute checking out.
Ceiling light fixture.
Display of unique book-binding styles.
View from the first balcony level toward the front entrance.
I can picture Dreamwidth's resident dragoncat librarian, silveradept, being very happy here indeed.
Those are excellent, thank you so much for sharing them! "Here is our perfectly symmetrical temple of books. Please feel free to read the books in the temple under your own small green lampshade. Also: ssshhhhhh."
