Yesterday, the 23rd of April, was World Book Day, an event organized by UNESCO – they decided it will be celebrated on this day because the date is the anniversary of birth and death of William Shakespeare, death of Miguel Cervantes (and also of a couple less known authors).
Personaly, I celebrated the day by buying three books yesterday, one of which I managed to read almost entirely already 🙂
But I decided I wanted to post something to celebrate the day here, and what can be a better symbol for the Book Day than a library? And then, a library which itself looks like a book shelf? It only gets better – so, there it is, the Kansas City Public Library. It’s facade resembles an enormous book shelf with giant copies of classics such as The Lord of The Rings, Romeo and Catch 22. Kansas residents picked out the facade novels themselves. Understandably, it is one of the city’s attraction. It surely would make me wanna come in!
