Heading west from yesterday’s New England library, this is William Rainey Harper Memorial Library in Chicago, Illinois, on the University of Chicago campus. Looks like a very cozy study spot! Brian notes that both Michelle and Barack Obama would have studied there while students.
This postcard was adopted by Brian, who responded to a listing I submitted to the wonderful Letter Exchange (LEX). I've been a member of LEX for many years, with a bit of a break in the early part of this century. It is a wonderful magazine and forwarding service that I highly recommend. I do offer a bit of a caveat. Many of the most prolific LEXers are not computer savvy and some are down-right anti-computer. I hope that changes with time, but I suspect it will be lots of time. There are always interesting discussions to be had without mention of computers, though ;-)
