Libraries Are...Everywhere?

A couple of weeks ago I was chatting with a voluteer in the Friends of the Hennepin County Library bookstore and we got onto the subject of libraries in other countries; she follows this blog, and she wondered whether other countries have libraries as we do. Link that conversation with an article on American exceptionalsim that a friend posted on Facebook today. Then try Googling "public libraries in ___" and name the country of your choice. We are not alone--there are wonderful libraries just about anywhere you look. Even this one:

Check that link...there are pictures.
