You know you're a big library dork when...
...you take pictures of libraries while you're on vacation.
This is the public library in Quepos, Costa Rica. Unfortunately, it was closed, so I don't know what it's like on the inside.
I didn't set out to find the library, but I did make sure to go back and take a look after I noticed the sign saying "library thisaway."
When I'm visiting a library I've never been to before (perhaps because of aforementioned library dorkishness, or perhaps because I've got a job interview), I like to take public transit there if it's possible. It helps me get a sense of how easy it is to get to the library. I'll usually stop people on the street and ask for directions to the library, not because I don't know where I'm going, but because I'm curious about whether people know where the library is. Usually the first person I ask is able to point me in the right direction. The only time I've really had trouble was on the way to a library board meeting a bit south of here. I had to ask three or four people because it took me a while to find someone who spoke English.
