I’m from Rochester, NY which is a little over an hour Northeast of Buffalo on Lake Ontario, as opposed to Buffalo being on Lake Erie. Rochester has always been a fairly progressive and liberal city with deep pockets when it comes to the arts and public services so I don’t think that our amazing Rundel Memorial Library is in any danger, but you never know.

 The library is a beautiful building inside and out, constructed on the Genesee River, which runs right through downtown Rochester. I’m a library fan and loved to be dropped off at Rundel for hours. That was pretty much the perfect afternoon for me when I was younger. Throughout my life I’ve always made local libraries a destination whenever I spent time in a city, and I have yet to find anything which I felt surpassed Rundel, and that includes each and every library in NYC that I visited during my 13 years of living there.
