Cedar Rapids Public Library's Green Roof. Photo by Dan Rasmussen.
Today Kerry and I visited the Cedar Rapids Public Library, again. I knew they had a "green roof" - graywater collection, plants, etc - but then I found out we could walk on it, and that's when I got excited. Had a pretty nice view. Unfortunately there was no shade cover today so lounging around didn't sound appealing. I surmise it'd be a great place from which to observe the sun set. I heard mention of umbrellas sometimes being available. So most of my lounging around was done inside. I wore my bicycle helmet, simultaneously doing my part to promote sustainable transportation and delight the children. Young boy in the elevator asked "Did you ride your bike?" Another boy in a tour group of kids said, "Hey, he's wearing a helmet!" I waved and a bunch of them waved back
