#478 Chennai Public Library

We stumbled on another library! 

The Connemara Public Library in Chennai has been around since 1890, though this new building was built in 1973.

Why is it that libraries and fish tanks go so well together?

The library is "one of four national depository libraries which receive a copy of all books, newspapers, and periodicals published in India." On a Sunday, the periodicals room is quiet.

From the back of the periodicals room, we find our way to the old building.

The stacks are closed in the old building, so we can't walk further.  But we admire the stained glass and the teak shelves and we remember this is where Ramanujan studied math.

Yours in enjoying another library day,
