Mori girls like libraries


This is the first in a series of features on stuff mori girls like. Of course, you don't have to agree with everything featured here. After all, each mori girl has her own distinct identity. However, it's nice to have some inspiration sometimes--that way we can all learn a bit from one another.

The public library is a place that is near and dear to many a mori girl. Losing yourself in a stack of books in the quiet of a warm afternoon, surreptitiously devouring a small bag of candy. Your library scores extra points if it's housed in an old building and has sturdy old wooden tables.

Because many mori girls tend to pursue a number of solitary interests, the library is the perfect place to read up on anything from sewing machine technique to the history of the graphic novel. Be sure to bring along a warm cardigan or scarf as the air conditioning in many libraries tends to get a bit chilly. You may also like to take with you a small bag of snacks, nuts or dried fruit perhaps, and a flask of hot tea.

I visit the library at least once a week. Sometimes I go just to collect books and DVDs I've placed on reserve, but every so often I can't resist browsing the shelves for books on random subjects. There's another library in my city that doesn't let its books be lent out, but is housed in a beautiful historical building with a reading room that's got a domed glass ceiling--perfect for an afternoon with a favourite novel.

  1. Mmm, I like this! Libraries are my favourite places in the world. a pleasant silence, books to browse and not commercial. My local library is in a beautiful building from 19th century with stairs and polished stone columns. Everytime I go there hours just disappear, it's so enchanting.
    ..though my librarians would object to bringing snacks to library!

  7. I just found out that there is a Carnegie Library within walking distance of my house (it is not part of the county's library system, which is why I never thought to check it out before.) As soon as this cold snap makes it bearable to leave the house, I am there!
