The Milpitas Library

Today is the Grand Opening of the new Milpitas Library. It's probably a zoo there right now.

But we went last week! It was awesome! It was actually open to the public all week, but really, most people assumed it wouldn't open until after the grand opening. I took the family there after work, and, boy, let me tell you, there's little better than a brand-new library that is full of books and empty of people.

We basically had the run of the place. I picked up a couple of graphic novels that I'd had my eye on, but was never interested in enough to buy. (One by Garth Ennis, the other drawn by Josh Howard.) The kids picked up about ten books each.

We explored the whole place. There were cabinets full of historical photos and artifacts. It was very cool to see Milpitas 100 years ago. Made me want to watch Deadwood again.
