Hey guys and girls! Just checking in after a lovely day of… Well just chilling out really.
Today I had a break from work and working on any writing of the book. Instead I went to check out the new library that has launched just recently in September.
I’d been hearing lots of cool things about the new Birmingham, (U.K.), Central library but just never got around to seeing it until today.
There are plenty places to chill out and read in. As well as many quiet areas to get writing done etc. They have a secret garden section on the roof which I could imagine myself brainstorming ideas in also.
They had a nifty little bird hunting game where you have to go around the whole library hunting for statues of different birds. On the statues were famous quotes from books that the bird is featured in. You take your bird leaflet around and fill in the missing quotes, once completed you take it as proof as your conquest and some reward is given to you in the form of book tokens. You could even hire some binoculars to use to hunt them down from afar, which should give you some idea as to the scope and size of the building.
They have a Shakespeare room with sculptures of old bill sitting around, funky pod chairs to sit in and read whilst encased in an orb of comfy hollowed out plastic, weird art and murals decorating the walls and a vast collection of music to sample.
All in all I had a nice chilled day out and an all important responsibility less day to unwind! ^__^.
