The first library we tagged at was Shute Park, which is the branch of Hillsboro library. Both have big windows, which I really love in a library. I like it when a building feels so open, especially when I can look out from between stacks of books and see a beautiful pond like I can at the main library.
In addition to the lovely view, Shute Park has a park (with swings!!!) in front of it and the main library has a coffee shop in the entrance. My employer said that all libraries should have coffee shops, and I’ve got to say that I agree with him on that. And a fireplace. All libraries should also have a cozy fireplace, which Hillsboro main library also has. If possible, they should also be cozy and homey, which Shute Park certainly is. The main library is a little too big to be cozy, but the view makes up for that.
I can’t really say which of the two are my favorite. One is cozy, but the other has coffee and a fireplace. I like them both.

ps. I had a job interview yesterday morning for a restaurant. Wish me luck!
