As in thekitchen - restaurant relation, I think one should see the library of a university first, before deciding to enroll !

Loved the classical order inthe architecture! I would certainly spend very prolific time for my studies there

These murals are Grant Wood's largest works. Most people know him for "American Gothic."

Ah, that's correct! Thus, that's a treasure I see there

It's been really useful! Thanks for posting, Barbarian

Btw, did I go too far associating the saying ''When tillage begins, other arts follow'' with the Neolithic revolution !!?? Oh, maybe Jeffersonianism would be more appropriate: )

After crossing central campus in winter's subzero temperatures, that library seemed to me a warm and inviting place. Yours is more accurate; mine fits my memory.
