Blood, Sweat, Diesel & Magik
Bay City Public Library
This imposing building of brick and stone see few people pass between the two marble lions and up the white stone steps to the library’s heavy wooden doors. Despite being one of the larges public libraries in the world, other than a few poor students and vagrants no one visits it much anymore. Tall oak bookcases are filled with every sort of book, encyclopedia, and newspaper. The main and second floor are of a Victorian style complete with comfortable overstuffed furniture to read the hours away. The basement hold nearly a quarter of the library’s total books but it is cramped with metal shelves stacked to the concrete ceiling. Combined with the poor lighting make s the basement seem more like a dungeon that a place of knowledge. Like the basement, the third floor is restricted from the public. It is on this floor, that the most exclusive books are kept and few even with the proper request forms are allowed to visit.
