When I went to Sendai City, the one place I wanted to visit was the Mediatheque Building. I had heard that it is a modern building which is home to a library. I told my husband and he said, “Why go there? It’s just a library.”
What darling doesn’t know is that library tourism is a booming hobby among G.E.A.K.S (Girls’ Epic Adventure Kliffhangers Society) and I am a card carrying member.
Here we are! Excited!
Hmmmm……It feels like I have stepped into the future.
I got permission to take photos.
The main library on the second floor. I wasn’t sure what this library was affiliated with, but was told that it was a city library.
Lots and lots of books! Mostly in English
Some Japanese learning books
Books in Russian (Not a lot of languages other than English, but certainly more than most libraries in Japan.)
A section of 3/11 book (the date of the big Tohoku earthquake)
The Fukushima University was better stocked though, when it comes to 3/11 material. But this is not a university library, so I guess one can’t compare.
The kids’ section.
Not really as many English books as I expected…perhaps (like the Fukushima City library) they are in storage?
Korean kids’ books
Yeah, I had fun! I really enjoyed it! Ohmigosh, Cookie Monster is on TV in an Apple commercial……..
I get easily distracted.
