downtown library

This is the central branch of Madison Public Library, just one block away from the capitol square & next door to the Overture Center. This was built during the cold war & has a nuclear fallout shelter in the basement. I am a huge fan of Madison's library system - for a city this size (250,000+) it has a remarkably thorough collection & commonly has wait lists for books & movies in the hundreds (the new Harry Potter book has over 1,000 people waiting for 150 copies!)
