My cousin, a Brown University graduate, worked at the John D. Rockefeller Jr. Library as a student and so treated my mother, her mother, and me to tour behind the circulation desk and among the stacks. It wasn’t my first time in the library, one of my close friends from high school attended Brown and we once strolled through, visiting a desk assigned him where he’d spent many hours studying.

Some of my favorite Librarytour blog photos came from this run through the Rock, including this rainbow of book carts . . .
