St. Louis Central Library Reopening: Dream


St. Louis Central Library Reopening 30

I think I'll wrap up this series with today's and tomorrow's posts. There are more images from the library on Flickr here. Might even edit a few more in my spare time, should I ever have any.

The top picture is of a special room for teens. It's good advice. Nothing will change unless you consider a different future. However, the people involved in the opening of the library in 1912 could not have dreamed of what it has become today. Sometimes people try to predict the future. That's useful, too, because such predictions are never right. They just sort of narrow the range of possibilities.

Looks like a very spacious area for kids.

"DREAM" is an excellent aspiration for teenaged kids. They sure can't miss the message in this room.
