Thousands of people showed up for opening day. Bert, Trudy and I took the bus to get there.

A new building looking out on the river under blue skies and a shining sun. A line winding slowly up the stairs. Kids with smiles dashing here and there. Groups gathering in conference rooms behind tall glass walls. People lounging around on the sixth floor terrace on colorful couches.

And people carrying books.
