Can you really go wrong with books? Whether it's a large library, with historical volumes under lock and key or a small quaint bookstore, with tucked away alcoves for quiet reading time, these are both all time favorite hangouts of mine. Add in all the electronics and wifi that have found their way into libraries today, and you'd have to say, they do have a somewhat different look to them in 2011. However, you can always find a spot for some quiet time though. This is the Portland Room at the Portland Public Library. It contains some the oldest and most valuable volumes in the library's collection. This room is warm, inviting and just the spot to spend 'me time' in on a blustery spring afternoon.
