Riverview Branch, St. Paul Public Library--Revisit

My visit today was brief; I had requested a book and asked to pick it up here, just for fun.

I read my post from last summer where I noted that this was a very lively library. It was perhaps not so lively this year, but that was probably due to the time of day. I sat for a while and watched a young boy, perhaps 10, very competently using the online catalog. That was nice to see.

Outside there are two benches bracketing a small paved area with monarch butterfly designs. A couple of the designs are in color, others are dark sillouettes intended for counting.

I left quickly in order to catch a bus...which did not come. If I'd known the next bus would not come either, I would have gone back inside, but hope springs eternal when it comes to waiting for buses. I ended up waiting by the bus stop, reading, for about an hour...

After seeing the pictures, it won't surprise you to know this is one of three Carnegie libraries in St. Paul.
