  • I’ve been going to Archives since I was a little boy (trust me, that’s a long time). You will savour your first visit, the smell, the creaking floor, the stacks that seem to go on forever. So you could go for the endless books, but you’ll always remember the wonderful experience. Also, go buy a book, share the love.
  • This place has books on every conceivable subject. If you are looking for something in particular, find the right section (ask the lady on the desk: that will save you time). Then be prepared to search carefully and methodically. The cataloging isn't perfect and some shelves are too high up to reach from the floor. Again, just ask for a ladder if you need one. When you find a book, expect to pay a fair price for it. Remember, they have to make a long too.
