I love the new San Marino Public Library, now known as Crowell Public Library.

Living in San Marino, one of our family's most favored traditions has been our Saturday morning visit to the library. I have to admit that we do not go each Saturday as we used to when the kids were little, but we still try to go as often as we can.

The library always offered a world of never ending mysteries, travel, romances and answers to any questions that I had as a kid and as an adult. Finding a book to read and the anticipation of the read is just one of those little pleasures in life. My hope was to relay my love of reading and the library to my kids and I think I did a pretty good job of it. :-)

As I get a lot of questions from home buyers looking to relocate to San Marino, I thought that it would be great to share a couple of great videos SCBarr about the San Marino library - the old and the construction of the new one.

It's really mind boggling that our new library was built so quickly in just a year or so.

Here's a couple of videos that I think you will enjoy.

This first video was posted on YouTube only a year ago - May 11, 2007. Take a look, it has some nice history of San Marino, as well as some aerials. A nice reminder of the library we had before. Way cool and Kudos to director.

This video captures the Topping Out of the San Marino Library.

Unfortunately, we don't have a video of the new Crowell San Marino Library, but for now here's a photo courtesy of www.Flickr.com and Daryl Chan.
