I’ve always had an affinity for maps. Not quite Apple Maps or Google Street View, per se, but paper maps, folded and crisp in my hands.  There’s simply something appealing to the notion of poring over a place, a city or region, holistically. The lobby of Council Tree Library is itself a relatively unco...
