mellow yellow monday inside vassar library

Vassar-Library



























remember that very old tree in front of the library at vassar college, and that fancy schmancy chandelier inside the library's entrance I posted about a couple of weeks ago?
here is a view of the inside of their library. notice the stained glass windows. and does anyone remember those old library card catalogs?
today is mellow yellow monday. if you feel so inclined, please visit drowsey monkey's mellow yellow monday meme to check out all things yellow. & don't forget to add your own bit of yellowness too.

My older brother went to Vassar and to this day he still talks about the beautiful library there. Love these photos! And I love card catalogs. Dunno, the geek and crafter in me just loves 'em. Could rummage and rifle through sets all day.

What a wonderful, mellow library. I could spend a long time reading, and a long time dreaming, in a library like this one.

Amazing to see a yellow interior like this!

A DAY WITHOUT YELLOW

A day without yellow is drear.
(At least, that’s what I think, my dear.)
Without the gold touch,
There just isn’t much
To give life a sparkle—that’s clear!

This makes me want to go back to college. I'm very curious as to what's in the card catalog though...surely not cards?

Wow, that is POSH for a student library. I didn't take a photo when we went to St Andrews. Will have to see if I can take one when we go on our next open day visit. Durham university is next up on our list.
