Pauline Loewenhardt

  • Whenever I entered the high-ceilinged, hushed interior of that library I felt a sense of awe but also felt comfortable, happy and secure. Sunlight slanting through the windows created shadowy nooks in the corners. The smell of the shiny, waxed terrazzo floors mingled with the dusty aroma of books. The library became a second home to me. To this day, I still have that feeling whenever I enter a library.
