During the summers of 2011 and 2012 I drove across the country with my son Walker photographing public libraries throughout the United States. In 2011 we visited 26 states driving 11,000 miles in eight weeks photographing 189 libraries. The states we visited included New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Mississippi, Arkansas, Tennessee, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, Pennsyvania, West Virginia, Virginia, Washington D.C., Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey, New York and New England.
In 2012 we drove 10,000 miles visiting 110 libraries in 15 states over four weeks. These states included Nevada, Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Missouri, Illinois, Kansas, Nebraska, Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, and Arizona.
