Life at the NRLF

The Northern Regional Library Facility stores quite a few of the books and journals I need. I suppose most people use it by having their materials paged by their university (which makes sense if one is in Santa Cruz or Davis), but since the NRLF is just down the road, I prefer to go there myself.
Everything comes within half an hour or so, often within ten minutes. This is much better than combing the stacks wondering why on earth nothing is on the shelf, although the latter technique does turn up interesting titles I had never heard of.
In recent years, the NRLF has done some remodeling so that there's quite a large reading room with lots of electrical outlets. It's a very agreeable place to work and the books can either be checked out to go home or reserved to use another day, so it has the advantage of a library carrel in that everything found need not be taken home.

Eucalyptus. Actually, the photo is from last summer, but while the sun does come out most afternoons at the NRLF, it has been pretty overcast and chilly around here the past week.

Looks like a great place for reading and observing nature. -The best of both worlds.
