Magnificent 19th-Century Library Shelves 350,000 Books

Feast your eyes on the elegant grandeur of the Real Gabinete Português de Leitura (known in English as the Royal Portuguese Reading Room or the Royal Cabinet), a 19th-century library in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Constructed from 1880 to 1887 under the direction of architect Rafael da Silva e Castro, the magnificent library has the distinction of holding the largest and most valuable collection of Portuguese works outside of Portugal, with over 350,000 volumes filling its countless bookshelves.

loitering is basically the illegal act of existing while not spending money

isn’t capitalism fun

This is part of why I’m so passionate about libraries. They’re one of the last few free public places you can go and not be pressured to spend money. Instead they actually offer resources and programs *for free* to the public!

YOU GUYS TURN ON THE SUBTITLES

AHH I NEED A MINUTE

OH MY GOD OH MY GOD A GAY GHIBLI MOVIE OH MY GOD

A GAY GHIBLI MOVIE! 

happy sobbing

resmeae:

Oh my God you guys I was up late last night and started thinking about how even an accessibly-written history book would still be out of reach for my l’Arche friends and then I though, oh, a PICTURE BOOK.  

A picture book, in an autism/dyslexia friendly font and braille text too, all about medieval disability history, full of things like:

  • many disabled babies died because they didn’t have our medicine, but their parents were really sad and missed them (i.e., countering the myth of “changelings” or “exposing” disabled babies)
  • priests were always supposed to baptise the babies and welcome them to the community
  • disabled adults were allowed to get married
  • sometimes they were lords and ladies and owned land, and had helpers to keep it organised
  • and other similar facts with maybe a story or two about particular disabled medieval people

And have it illustrated with models from medieval manuscripts, but give them Down syndrome characteristics, or in medieval-looking wheelchairs, and some in peasant clothes and others in fancy aristocratic garb, and some POC characters…  

And just, a book especially written for the people who started me on this whole journey, and all the kids with (and without) disabilities to see themselves represented in history and know they had a place.  I WANT THIS SO BAD YOU HAVE NO IDEA.

And then, in the back, reference it all to hell with primary sources so NO ONE CAN ARGUE WITH IT and take it away.  I mean, of course the medieval period wasn’t perfect and people did get hella abused and taken advantage of, but that wasn’t the whole story and I’m pretty sure people today would rather read about the positive parts since they’re well fucking aware of the shitty way disabled people are treated.  I want to counter the narrative that it was universally bad and awful and let people know YOU EXISTED YOU MATTERED YOUR STORIES DO EXIST.

In the criminal justice system, supernatually-based offenses are considered really, really weird. In Beacon Hills, California, the dedicated detectives who investigate all this bizarre shit are Sheriff Stilinski and Derek ‘The Nose’ Hale (that guy, you know, the lurky one whose family died in a fire? Yeah it’s totally him).

These are their stories.

DUN DUN
