Not only was it quite hot yesterday, but I was a little stressed out from my volunteer job, and sitting peacefully among rows of books suddenly appealed to me. I headed for our main library, a fairly new and quite lovely building (except for the escalator in the middle of the main floor, which is completely wrong in a library). I found a quiet table by the windows and enjoyed doing a sketch, and then I found a couple of wonderful books at the second hand store on the way out. All in all, a pleasant afternoon's work.
