Winchester, Virginia - Handley Library

This is the public library in Winchester, Virginia. Unfortunately, this photo does not do justice to the beauty of the building. Winchester is a small town, a population of under 24,000, so to find such a building there was surprising. Loving libraries as I do, I wanted to see the inside, and it too was beautiful.

That is a very impressive library and what a beautiful staircase. I used to live near Winchester, UK, which has many lovely buildings, too.

Although it is not apparent in the photo, the design of the Hanley Library building is that of an open book. The spine of the book is where the entrance is, with wings to the left and right representing the rest of the book.
