It’s true. The Bascom Branch Library is really great. And big. And on the outside, it screams NEW! INNOVATIVE! LIBRARY!
Seriously, every library is basically designed in pretty much the same structure on the outside so you can see from down the block the shiny beacon of Beauty that is THE LIBRARY.
Inside though, the Bascom Library isn’t as imaginative and fun as the others are. (Which explains the lack of photos)
It’s straight to business. Colors are fine. But no stuffed dragon or tree sculpture here! No sir!
There’s no difficult door to maneuver or find. It’s like one big glass window slapped the other one out and made a parallel gap between the two so you can just WALK THROUGH LIKE A BOSS (without having to make a fool of yourself wondering if it goes in or out -EDENVALE!!-)
Anyways, yea. Did my homework here. Not really, just fell asleep on the couch before I even read one page of SIDDHARTHA.
Don’t worry. I saw 2 old people sleeping while I was touring the library. I’m not alone.
But, that was then. You can’t stay too long in the red zone.
This is going to sound so cheesy, but bear with me.
Only YOU are in charge of where to steer your bike. U-turn it, drive it madly down the road, turn left or right. There’s many ways to bike.
As for me, this summer I’ve been driving my bike all sorts of wonky ways and will probably continue in that manner. Life is fun that way.
And eventually, when it’s time to park your bike, lock it up safely and walk away in style!
The time comes soon! I’m off to Alviso Branch Library in less than 12 hours!
