I’m not sure if this is a common approach to trips, for librarians, but I often find myself visiting “popular” library sites when on vacation. Today, I type from the Mathewson-IGT Knowledge Center on the University of Nevada Reno campus. It’s a spacious place built out of red-brick and is definitely inviting. They offer guest wi-fi and plentiful seating. The Center proves a perfect place to escape the casino filled downtown area and one’s hotel. Vacations, as most know them to be, don’t usually supply the relaxation for which is aimed. We’re often running around trying to fit it all in, going from stop to stop, restaurant to restaurant (or bar to bar), etc.
However, library time manages to be greatly relaxing. Setting up the day’s plans and routes is easily done when you’re in an information hub that supports brainstorming and travel design. Thanks, UNR Knowledge Center, I’ll upload some photos, check out some restaurant reviews, and map out the day’s events- next time I’m in town I’ll be sure to schedule a tour.
