Update: the library opened. It is gorgeous as expected, but also hushing and so powerful it turned me inside out upon impact. Turns out all the words got used up reacting to it the first time I entered it. I walked through it the other day on my own and ended up feeling small and stranded a bit. I felt like I have when I have visited other countries. At first enchanted and then later, excited and now a bit daunted about all the parts of it I don't understand yet or know how to be in comfortably. Looking forward to my next quiet visit when I can get turned inside out by it once again. It unzipped a big seam in the sky and the ground into which I stepped and have yet to emerge.
