What's going on, Albuquerque?
Sometimes this town slips back into the 1940s. For instance, when strolling by The Ernie Pyle Library on a residential corner in University Heights. They even have a one man show there today about ABQ's famous war correspondent.
Yes, it's crowded at times. First public branch in ABQ also. D
Thanks for the link Doogie. He was an amazing person. D
You have to love libraries of any kind but the kind that link history directly to the community are even better. That place is awesome.
Yes Lahjik, the library is a perfect memorial to him. Doogie, I'm sure it was a nice and quiet then, although I read that he had to check into a hotel to write sometimes. Too many visitors when he'd come to ABQ. D
I used to go to Ernie Pyle with my grandmother as a small child...its distinctive, comfortable smell (which fortunately it retains) is still the smell of books and reading to me 30 years later...
Thanks again Doogie, your travelogues inspire me too. Maybe I'll actually get out of the city... Phil, the library of my youth was in a crowded, homey storefront. I adored it...D
