Libraries are important in Second Life.
They frequently link with real world library communities. They can also be the core of a Second Life community, not only providing books and articles (or links to them), but also staging events, whether book discussions, poetry slams or creative writing workshops.
And here is a library that has the wow factor. It’s one of Kayle Matzerath’s Garden of Dreams builds. These can be rezzed as skybox “scenes” – although I’ve also seen some of his builds set on the ground to create community venues. And this would certaily be a worthy candidate for such a role.
It’s on two floors – both accessible. There are tables for sitting and studying at, glass display cases, reading desks, a warming fire – a library station for a librarian to sit at and say “Shhh!”
It’s a stunning beautiful build, from the arched wooden ceiling to the variety of sit poses in every chair. And it’s only 433 prims (or land impact, if you prefer).
And here’s a jigsaw of a corner of it!
Catch up with your Prim Perfect jigsaws (showing images of Second Life and other virtual worlds).
If you’d like to submit a photo of your own to feature as a jigsaw, send it to the Prim Perfect Flickr Group. It should be sized 800w x 600h, or else it will need to be re-sized.
