In Praise of the Town Library” by Michael Gorra in The Smart Set 2007-10-13

I remember the library in Schwerin, Germany, in an otherwise purposed building. I went to find an atlas, to confirm what I suspected: that I had crossed into the former East Germany. They had no atlas from before 1989.

’Tis but rain, and runs not clear.
