Library Visit

To Do List:
3: Visit the library on campus. Check.
One of the things on my to do list was to visit the library this semester. This past Wednesday, I had one of my former students show me around the place. Here are a few photos from the excursion.

I was impressed with the quality and quantity of the books in the library. They had several different sections of books for teachers and students alike. They also had a magazine room full of the most recent Chinese scholarly publications. Students could sit at long tables and read their favorite magazine or do some research in a quiet room with a helpful librarian.

However, I was not impressed with the library's building. It is old and has a slightly abandoned, haunted feeling about it. (wish I had snapped a few more photos). My student told me the library is especially scary in the evenings and she will not use one of the bathrooms on the third floor after dusk. Yikes!

(Yeah, no idea what I'm reading here.)

Impressive. It looks as though you have the book right side up.
