If only they had libraries like the one at Hampton Street School when I was a kid. It has the perfect combination of a modern-vibe with a traditional learning atmosphere. It is also big enough to give the building a larger-than-life attitude, yet small enough to give it a cozy, one-on-one instruction sense that many schools sadly lack today.
When I saw the stuffed animals atop the bookshelves, specifically Clifford the Big Red Dog, I immediately harkened back to my days stuck to the couch reading Curious George or Goosebumps as well as Judy Blume books.
