New Library in Boca!

Wow.....my town's new library has 50,000 square feet on two full floors. I felt like I was in a huge Palace!

The Library couldn't be more beautiful or convenient for me. It has an entry way that leads to a circular drive with a covered drop-off and a drive-up book drop! The rear is an amazing focal point of the building, with the back of the building facing the existing lake.

In addition, there is a café for coffee, a bagel, or lunch which I liked very much. A rear terrace facing the lake provides space to eat outside. A beautiful rooftop terrace allows library users a space to sit, read, and relax. This place is spectacular! I love the terrace and the atmosphere.

Looks like this will be a new hangout for me! I enjoyed breakfast there yesterday and I plan on having a quiet lunch there today after selecting a good book to read.

Yesterday, a charming gentleman nodded his head as I walked by and winked at me! LOL Well, that made my day! That doesn't happen too often to people my age! LOL

I had a very enjoyable day!

  1. Wow, what a cool library. Bet you will spend a lot of time.

  2. I find it difficult to believe that you're not winked at often. Hell, I winked at you three times this week myself (long distance). Nice to hear you found a little niche up there.


  3. Oh, you little minx, getting winks from fellas! ;) There's another one for you!

    Your new library is beautiful! We're fortunate to have a branch near us with lovely landscaping and a little cafe. I hope you get lots of enjoyment and hours of reading at yours!

    Hugs, Beth
