About the Central Library she says:
"Two things that make a visit here most unforgettable are the grand staircase and the domed rotunda that separates the building's east and west wings... the library has all the bells and whistles that today's modern users expect, yet it still gives the impression of being a cherished old friend." The article lists her favorite public libraries.
