Outfit: The Armagh Public Library


It seems fitting that my last outfit post leading up to Valentine's Day features me in a heart embellished dress in an old and lovely library. Libraries and books were after all my first loves and constant companions through many a lonely day. When people used to ask me what type of person I was attracted to I would answer that I was more attractied to books than people self-labeling as "bibliosexual." Despite the misleading name, the Armagh Public Library is not where you go to check out books for your personal reading pleasure. Instead it is the oldest library in Northern Ireland housing rare and valuable books. However if you love books and libraries you can still visit this little slice of heaven (just don't touch the pretty books without gloves, a mistake we made in ignorance although I'm holding a regular paperback in most of these pictures) as a visitor or researcher. For us it was a good way to pass a grey February afternoon.
