This 5-Story Library In Arizona Is Like Something From A Dream

As their pages yellow with age, a nostalgic aroma is emitted that has a universal understanding despite no words being able to describe it. Burton Barr Central Library offers one such experience, with over one million volumes spanning five stories.
Katie Lawrence is a Southeast Texas native who graduated 18th in her high school class with a GPA of 4.25. She attended college in the Houston area and changed her major twice (psychology, computer science, and finally criminal justice) before taking a leap of faith and dropping out to pursue a career in freelance writing.
Today, Katie writes for the Texas and Arizona pages of OnlyInYourState.com and has never been more passionate about a job before. Outside of work, you can likely find her curled up on the sofa with a hot cup of coffee, watching a crime TV show or scary movie.
