Brooklyn Public Library Quilt Show

Libraries have a special place in my heart. 

Built in 1941, the Central Branch of the Brooklyn Public Library was designed to look like an open book.  Since I was a teen I've loved going there and I've spent many hours inside its hallowed halls researching, reading and dreaming.  But I never dreamed that one day, I'd have a quilt on display there. I've posted before about the quilt, 72 Degrees. Now it's on display in the Grand Lobby in the show Botanical Inspirations through April 28th. 

The Main Branch of the Library bears many inscriptions, both inside and out. 
One of my favorites is "Of all men's creations, books are the nearest to us, for they contain our very thoughts, our ambitions, our indignations, our illusions, our fidelity to truth, and our persistent leaning toward error." (Joseph Conrad)
