You may remember, I showed you my library, the one I use all the time. Indianapolis has 23 branches, and this is the big downtown library — Central Branch. We go there, too, but not as often. We got the girls their very first library cards there, which was exciting, because Central Branch is quite fancy with its limestone and marble and chandeliers and shelves way over your head. It’s all very Belle enters Beast’s library. Also, it’s enormous. I wanna say it has six stories. You could easily lose your Moo there.
In my daytime photo, you can’t really see the addition to the Central Library, but you can in the night photo. That lit up section behind it is the library’s addition.
My photos are not good, but we can thank IndyStar.com for this gem —
Thank you professional photographer. Back to my photos now, me, sans flight capability…
I apologize, I am not democratic or unbiased about art. I only photographed the art I like.
Here you see Thinman. On the same panel to the right of the entrance, there is what appears to be a large donut. Truly, I don’t know what it is. It’s called Little Bird, but it looks like a donut. Or a cervix. I won’t say it’s not art, I’ll just say it doesn’t make me feel anything.
That bison though…
Love the lamps!
Only the center door has the iron gates and since we were there well after the library had closed, I’m going to assume they don’t shut them. I love historical details like these. I’m glad they’ve kept them on, even if they’re merely ornamental.
