Across the street from Fabric Depot is the Midland Library. I’m a bit ashamed that I’ve never visited, so today I crossed at the crosswalk–where there was a flashing yellow sign to stop all the cars on busy 122nd Ave.–and discovered that I had never noticed there were quotes on the outside of the building.
Each quote began with a marker and the author of the quote was identified with the key at the bottom. Very good.
Inside it is light and beautiful. This is also a very large library. Outside of the Central Library, this may be the largest branch library I’ve visited in the Multnomah County System.
I think the only thing this library is missing is the exclamation point.
