“Reading opens minds,” reads one. Another will declare the library “A home for poems.” There are books for Laura Ingalls Wilder and Ursula K. Le Guin. There are 16 Harry Potter Bricks with phrases like “I solemnly swear I’m up to no good,” and “Tonks was from Hufflepuff.” A number of bricks feature phrases in Tlingit, like one that reads “Reading and Haa Aaní.”
