New York Public Library

She takes your questions and she looks fabulous doing it. Sending people on for a glimpse into the Reading Room, or to the Ladies Room. She is part marble herself, and part sculpture with that swoop of slightly orange tinged hair. Are those sunglasses? Faux glasses? Is that collar as high as it need be? When slipping past to get a book there was a whiff of something mid-scale, a tad Elizabeth Arden. The Hound will not see the Woolf exhibit at the Grolier, and she misses the pencils only atmosphere of the Berg though she knows, we all know, that the bulk of the library's contents are now online.
