Johnston Central Library and Farnham Centre – Shaffrey Associates

“Libraries are reservoirs of strength, grace and wit
Reminders of order, calm and continuity,
Lakes of mental energy, neither warm nor cold,
Light nor dark. In any library in the world, I am at home,
Unselfconscious, still and absorbed”
Greer 1989
