#628 Rostock libraries

"Bibliotheken rechnen sich nicht, aber sie zahlen sich aus" translates roughly to "libraries do not pay for themselves, but they do pay off."

I learned this when I wandered into the beautiful Rostock stadtbibliothek, aka the Rostock city library.
The Rostock librarian and I bonded when she confided that she, too, visits libraries on her travels. 
In the city park, we came across another special library.  You can take a book.  You can give a book.  You can borrow a book.  

Yours in appreciating libraries at every turn,
