Bora Laskin at the Birge Carnegie Library

As promised yesterday, here is  a little bit about the Bora Laskin Law Library’s new home at the Birge Carnegie Library.  Part of the Victoria University Campus, the building was first opened in 1910 and housed Victoria University’s Library until the 1960’s. The building is lovely;  the neo-gothic style and the  ivy covered walls provide a great sense of  history and tradition.

Ivy covered walls in the fall. This is what the students will see when they start classes

The inside is equally impressive:

This is an older photo of the reading room but it looks much the same even today.

The stacks area though is slightly more funky!!!

The stacks area in the lower floor with a slightly less traditional colour scheme!
