Central Library

Dr. P. introduced me to the idea of spending time at the venerable and beautiful Central Library in downtown Saint Louis.

As I write on this Wednesday, I’m at a table in the visual arts room, enjoying the high ceilings, free wi-fi, quiet, and ability to concentrate without Auggie barking or me deciding I need to do something else for five minutes.

Truth be told, getting out of the house is the best thing to help me accomplish the non-reading tasks I need to accomplish during this sabbatical.

The largest of those tasks right now?  Curriculum paperwork for the Webster University Department of Music.  I’m on a deadline!

This library was renovated and updated within the last decade.  The Old World touches were retained, however.  This particular room boasts an intricately designed plaster ceiling, modeled after a 16th-century abbey in Florence.

But modern touches include stellar lighting designs, composite floors, and updated public amenities.
