A Structure of Significance.

Nov 25, 2015

It seems such an unassuming building tucked behind a small parade of shops but, its importance to me is beyond measure. It’s a building that I frequented regularly as a child. It’s the place I had an epiphany that put me on the path I continue to tread today.

I remember the event clearly. Back then the building housed the library. I was sitting on the floor researching a career in journalism. In one of the books I chanced on a chapter about photography. That was it. In that moment, in that building, my future identity as a photographer was set in motion.

Thank you Balsall Common Library!

    Thank you for the lovely comments about the library. It makes a rewarding job even more worth while when I hear about the impact the library has on customers.

    Catherine, this was my 2nd library. I remember all of them, such vital institutions. I’m glad to hear you love the library too :)
