The L.A. Times included Noyes Children's Library in its story about noted photographer Carol M. Highsmith's pictures of "Remarkable Libraries," to be archived at the Library of Congress.
Highsmith is in the midst of a multi-year project, traveling around America to capture how we live. Her collection at the Library of Congress contains more than 25,000 images, all in the public domain. Through her lens, her subjects take on a sparkling beauty, from the extravagantly gorgeous to the quietly vernacular. Here is a look at her photographs of libraries across the country, from the humble to the magnificent.
