I had one of those wonderful weekends – staying overnight in a little B & B in East Melbourne. Relaxing, enjoyable and absolutely lovely.
Around 4.30pm while wandering down George Street on the way to take a look at the beautiful Fitzroy Gardens, a very modern looking building popped into view. Surrounded as it is by old stately terrace houses, the structure, which in the twilight hours glowed at us, was like a magnet, attracting us to explore. Lo and behold we happened upon East Melbourne Library. Needless to say I just had to stop and go inside to look, see and explore.
Although only a little Library, it is packed full of all kinds of goodies. Best picks greet you at the entrance. From there you quickly move around the cavernous furniture displaying magazines, reference books, fiction, large print and all the usual fare that we’ve come to expect in a Library. Both the signage and the unusual shelving are inviting and add to the warm ambience. The whole Library glows. I very nearly ditched my weekend away and curled up with a book there! Add this one to your must visit.
