Caledon Libraries, Part 2

Continuing our tour of Caledon's libraries, we have the Vannevar Bush Reading Garden, in Caledon Prime. According to the font of all knowledge, Wikipedia, Bush, among his many accomplishments, "introduced the concept of what he called the memex in the 1930s, a microfilm-based 'device in which an individual stores all his books, records, and communications, and which is mechanized so that it may be consulted with exceeding speed and flexibility.'"

It's a little dark to read in this photograph, but one can imagine the setting during a nice, sunny summer day. And is that a trebuchet in the garden?

Too dark to read, but not too dark to sit in contemplation.

And now for something completely different! The Tanglewood library, in Tinyville.

I feel like a giant!
