Going to the Library (IMG00282)

I took this photo of the Carlingwood Branch of the Ottawa Public Library on July 2, 2011 just b4 the 5 pm closing time.

When the sun is burning every inch of my exposed skin outside, I find it relaxing just sitting inside a quiet air-conditioned library, flipping the pages and enjoying some light reading, all free of charge.

I did that when I was living in Hong Kong. My most favourite "cold" rooms included:
* the library of the US Embassy (it had the coldest air-conditioning system)
* City Hall library's reading room (where I met other student friends)
* the Catholic Centre in a downtown office building facing the harbour (I think it was near the Mercury House, not sure tho)
* Caritus Centre library (near Cain Road, mid-level up the hill, I recall)

I wonder how many ppl still go to the libraries these days.
