Check It Out

In response to my last post, George (Biblioadonis, of The Disney Geeks) requested some photos of the Public Library on the Streets of America. Much to my dismay, when I went back to take some detailed shots, I found that the Osborne Lights team had beaten me to the punch. The Year of a Million Refurb walls has claimed another victim, and the area is currently walled off to allow for the installation of the large light tree and rotating globe. So I wanted to take this opportunity to apologize to George for a slightly abbreviated exploration of this area.

The Public Library is located in The Plymouth building, which, to the best of my knowledge, is a fictious location. Please feel free to correct me if I am wrong!

The architectural style features characteristics similar to that of Beaux-Arts or Greek Revival, with heavy stone arches, relief carvings, and statues.

Interestingly, this is not the only Library found on the Streets of America - another one can be found in the false facade at the end of the street.

That is SOOOO awesome!

Thank you so much for getting those pictures.

I guess I will be able to get my picture taken in front of the buildings during MouseFest...but there will be dangly lights all over them, huh?

It was my pleasure - I just wish those walls had not been there when I went back to visit. I know there are some fun stickers and posters on the lower windows encouraging people to read and visit the Library. I'm kicking myself now for not grabbing photos of them when I was there a couple weeks ago!

The refurb walls will definitely be down in December, but if I remember correctly that area is roped off in some way to prevent people from getting to close to the light displays. But it will sure look great at night!

Don't forget Belle's Library at EPCOT!
