The library is full of words and they don’t all live inside books

Words tell a story. You’re thinking about stories in books, aren’t you? What about the words that are free-floating – on walls, shelves, boxes? Some have been created recently while others have lived in the library longer than the current library staff. Many of these are forgotten, invisible – not worthy even of a fleeting glance. All tell a story we are too busy to notice.

Awaiting. Sense the anticipation experienced by the inanimate objects.

The library is like a rock pool. You need to bend down and peer in, stay there for a while to see everything. The library is a time capsule where people and objects live together harmoniously, blending past and present.
