I’m sure you noticed a bit of blog silence. I was just on vacation for a bit. StatsGuy had his big stats conference in Boston, and the rest of the family tagged along for some fun. Lots of history and cool buildings in Boston, including the library. We typically head to the main library of a big city if we’re going to be in town for a week or so, as a chance to decompress for a bit. Boston’s library didn’t disappoint.
The library is a very impressive structure, inside and out. It has a courtyard, and big marble stairs when you walk in the door. There’s even some stone lions guarding the murals on the walls.
I can’t speak too much for the collections at the library, since we only went to the children’s library and that part of the library was under construction. But the building is worth spending some time in, even if you don’t want to read any of the books.
