I wanted to share a place where I have done a few architectural shoots which is none other than Hunt Library. If you haven’t been than you are missing out. Every time I walk in here I feel like a kid in a candy shop with all the designs and colors! Located on NCSU Centennial Campus, this library building covers more than 221,000 square feet, 5 floors, and a plethora of students. The color tables and chair designs mixed throughout the floors make it very unique and quite delightful. I mean egg chairs, ball chairs, event the dag on Hunt Chair. Side note: To all my camera junkies out there I primarily use a Canon 5dsr and 24mm tilt shift when I do these kinds of shoots. Cheers! 📸 @smith_hardy_photo

It wouldn't feel right to skip over my alma mater on my baton day. I graduated from NC State on 2015 with my PhD. I love love love Hunt library so I had to post from here. During the last few months of my PhD, I practically lived here and a scoop of the Howling Cow ice cream was usually the highlight of my day. It's so great to come back here just to have some ice cream and read, which I love to do as much as I can. Also, @ncsulibraries received the 2016 national medal, which they deserved so much. I feel so proud to be an alumni of this great school!

I began the day with a very tiny library and am penultimately posting a VERY big one. A day of Raleigh highlights for me wouldn't be complete without a visit to @ncsulibraries Hunt Library. More and more I am convinced that this is the library of the future. It encourages so much collaboration between students, departments, artists, researchers and non-profits. Not to mention the amazing programs and forward-thinking spaces, like the video game lab (with the most fun chairs ever created). I was just reflecting that my daughters will grow up in a world where it's completely normal for a robot to fetch books for you. Summer is a great time to see the library if you haven't already! #libraryofthefuture #myhuntlibrary #librariesofinstagram Photo by @veganbuglady
I’m fortunate enough to work for @ncsulibraries, where I find myself surrounded by innovative, ambitious, and interesting people. I wish I could show you all of my favorite spaces within D.H. Hill and Hunt Libraries, but for now I’lll show you the newest one: the D.H Hill Library Makerspace (@ncsulibmakerspace), which opened this past summer. As huge nerd, I’m always in awe at how incredibly awesome - and accessible - the technology within this room is. Circuits, 3D printing, 3D scanning, laser cutting, and so much more (including workshops if you have no idea what any of this is). I 3D scanned and printed myself - how cool is that?! Want to know more about @ncsulibraries? Follow our social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram), check out #myhuntlibrary, and keep an eye out for an upcoming NCSU Libraries Baton Instagram account, where you can take a glimpse into our fabulous spaces, services, and staff. #ncsulibraries #ncsumakes
Because I apparently hate myself, I'm taking 26 hours this semester so that I can graduate in December. As an English major, that many hours translates into non-stop reading and a ton of papers, and what better place to get all that done than the James B. Hunt Jr. Library? It was built during my sophomore year at State and is easily one of the coolest buildings on campus. It's amazing architecture, crazy chairs and productive vibe help make endless homework a lot more bearable. (Photo by: @brookesobright) #huntlibrary #ncsu
Just wrapped a Triangle AMA meeting on @ncstate Centennial Campus. #thinkanddo
I graduated from State in 2006, when Centennial Campus was more blueprint and less brick. Back then, I only knew the campus as a convenient jogging path close by my house.
Now? This place is bursting with innovation and thought leaders. The @ncsulibraries #huntlibrary is a studying student's dream.
Even though my college memories are on main campus, I am so proud of #NCState for its aggressive strategy to be a leading research university. #gopack (
One place I have to highlight today is located on State's Centennial Campus. Whenever we have friends or family come visit I have a few must-see stops and the Hunt library is certainly one of them. Locals tend know all about it, but many have never stopped in and actually seen the BookBot in action. Whether you bleed Red or your own shade of Blue, this library is nothing short of unbelievable for anyone. Every time I walk in I find this inner peace that slowly generates creativity. Not to mention it is the perfect hideaway. They have my favorite egg-shaped-chairs (think Sleepless in Seattle) that you sink into. I'll be the one curled up, reading a book quietly without any interruption :) PhotoBy @MrsKerriFowler #wishfulthinking #getcreative #huntlibrary #gopack
Besides RDU's Terminal 2, Hunt Library on NCSU's Centennial Campus is my favorite building. This is not your fathers college library. Hell, this is not my college library for that matter! Long gone are the stacks and stacks in this place, now replaced by a robot that retrieves books for you. The technology in this place is ridiculous. I am really impressed that NCSU has a place like this for students to use. You can actually take a tour of the library and their bookbot too! I also included one of the many, many chairs in the library. All the chairs are so famous there's a tumbr and a video on Vimeo about them!

It has been a pleasure sharing with you all some of my favorite places around #Raleigh. My evening is far from over, as academics call my name. #HuntLibrary at NC State is a marvel, a great place to study and a work of art, designed by Norwegian @Snohetta. Cheers! I pass the baton over to @stephsmith_zass. (Photo by @jleodaniel)
You can tell just by looking at the #huntlibrary that it's something special. What you can't tell just by looking is that it's the amazing staff here that makes it one of the best libraries anywhere.
Today I'm here testing environmental conditions. Not surprisingly, with a new facility, all is in order.
I'll stop sounding like an advertisement for #ncstate now - I'm just very proud of this place.

I get to work in one of the coolest buildings in the Triangle. I love walking into #huntlibrary every day. Photo by @rttnappl
These days I split my time between the new #HuntLibrary and good ol' D. H. Hill. I'm back on main campus to go to some meetings with other librarians. Beautiful day = tons of people on the #Brickyard. While #CentennialCampus is growing rapidly, #DHHill is getting slightly more traffic than Hunt at the moment. #raleigh #ncstate #students by @NCSULibraries
One of the things I work on is the content program for the large video walls in the #HuntLibrary, made of Christie #MicroTiles. This is a wall of Instagram photos taken by our students and tagged #huntlibrary. We hope to continue featuring campus-created exhibits about #NCState work. #raleigh #crowdsourcing #videowall #technology by @NCSULibraries
OK, here's the real star of the show, the bookBot. The automated book retrieval system holds 2 million volumes in 18000 bins. Contrary to popular belief, no librarians were replaced by it! We've actually been hiring staff left and right to prepare for the #huntlibrary. #raleigh #books #ncstate #libraries #jobs by @ncsulibraries
bookBot schmookBot. The coolest piece of technology in the #HuntLibrary is this magic coffee machine in the staff lounge. 80 cents a cup on the honor system and they bill you once a month. #Raleigh #coffee #technology #NCState by @NCSULibraries
Hard not to be excited about coming to work these days! The #HuntLibrary opened January 2. To put it lightly, my colleagues and I worked incredibly hard to pull this off! It's been really fun to finally see students using it. #raleigh #ncstate #ncsu #libraries #innovation #collaboration #architecture #Snøhetta #education
Hi, I'm Mike Nutt, the librarian behind the @NCSULibraries account at #NCState University in #Raleigh (@splendidmike on Twitter). First activity of the day is getting to the #HuntLibrary on #CentennialCampus! #Wolfline #commute
With so many chairs at #HuntLibrary, it's hard to decide which one to pick! @davidjfiala's goal is to review every single one.
#HuntLibrary has a variety of chairs, but this one is a guest. Sometimes you have to sit to take a stand. The Red Chair serves to bring awareness to the need for more women in computing and IT and recognize them for the important role they play in creating future technology.
