If your family is anything like mine they know how much you love libraries and they understand that any kind of travel is bound to include a visit (or two or three) to a library. We call it library tourism and library professionals of the world love it!
My big brother spent the last 6 months of 2017 travelling the world and along his journey he sent me pictures of libraries in some of the fabulous locations he visited. I’ve been known to drag him into libraries when we’re travelling and he graciously tags along because he knows I’m a library nerd. But I like to think he enjoys it too!
In Norway, he visited Longyearbyen Folk Library which I believe is the northern-most public library in the world. He even asked one of the staff if they would be a guest on my podcast Turbitt & Duck! In my brothers own words:
“Your podcast armed me with words to use in the discussion with him. Sounds like they are struggling with the same problems as Australia with usage of space and whatnot.”
I really love that my brother took the time to visit and photograph libraries for me and I wanted to share them with you. We may never get to visit these libraries ourselves but we can all enjoy the photos!
