Years ago, when wildfires decimated my town, I happened to be browsing in a used bookstore. I overheard a man asking for an estimate to replace some rare books he'd lost in the fire. This is the library I pictured from his description. His was also two stories, round, but with a round skylight much like (he said) the Parthenon in Rome. I often wondered if he rebuilt it the same way.
