thu vien - library in Sa Pa!

The first and only public library I have seen in Vietnam! Thư viện means library in Vietnamese - I'm not sure if I recognized the sign first... or saw the inside of this room, but this library is located on the main street of central Sa Pa. Some men working in the office next door looked at Elizabeth and I curiously as we were so excited to go into the library... no one was in there... but the guys didn't seem to mind that we walked in and looked around.  : )

And they even still have a card catalog! (I want one of these for my future home.)

Elizabeth randomly opened a drawer and flipped to a card...

...and that card just happened to be about Ho Chi Minh! (How appropriate.)
