Books are the plane, and the train, and the journey
Today I visited the State Library of Victoria, Melbourne. It is stunning. We joined the guided tour of the dome. Again, like so many of the free things to do in this beautiful city it was just us and the guide.
In recent years, Victoria invested a substantial sum of money to refurbish the beautiful building. Money well spent.
The quote is one of the many on the walls of the La Trobe reading room which is beautifully furnished, and is one of the quiet reading rooms.
Not that any of them are noisy as such, just full of people and life and free wifi and a chess room! And Ned Kellys’s armour.
Its archives include comic books
It holds over 1.5 million books too.
I’m glad it was part of my journey.
