Marilyn Monroe Reading

Slate.com and Magnum Photos post these wonderful photographs of libraries and people reading, from around the 1940’s to the present.

#13 is a  photo of Marilyn Monroe hanging out at a playground, reading a book, in a bathing suit.

#20 is James Dean reciting James Whitcomb Riley‘s poetry.

Here’s a snapshot of the reading room in the old Valdosta State College Library, when the library was in Powell Hall:
