Leroy Collins Leon County Public Library
The main building of the Leon County Public Library is located downtown and is named for former governor of Florida, Leroy Collins. This building also gained notoriety during the 2000 U.S. presidential election because disputed ballots from Miami-Dade county were trucked to Tallahassee and brought here, where they were hand counted by local judges. While the counting was going on, hundreds of reporters were camped out in the park across the street where I was standing when I took this picture.
