I went to visit my friend Laura.  She was going to give me some books or something.  We were in the basement of her building.  It was a huge empty space that seemed like it went on forever.  While she is going through her books she is talking about it.  I start walking around.  It's below ground but there are windows all around.  If you look out them it's ground level with outside, so you can see people walking around.  Laura starts telling me more about the space.  She walks me all the way back to the other end.  It's literally like the entire length of a large building.  There are support poles all around.  We get to the other end and there is a door.  She opens the door.  It's the public library.  I see people sitting at desks reading their books.  On the walk back to the other end I see that off to the left there is a whole kitchen.  I start planning out the space in my head.  What I would put where if I could move in.  I wanted to designate a space for a soccer field.  There was that much room.  Then I'm getting ready to ask her if it's available to rent. 

Additional Comments:

Basement- To dream that you are in a basement, symbolizes your unconscious mind and intuition. The appearance of the basement is an indication of your unconscious state of mind and level of satisfaction.It represents primal urges, animalistic desires and basic needs. The dream may also be metaphor for "abasement" or being "debased". Are you feeling humbled or unworthy? To dream that the basement is in disarray and messy, signifies some confusion in which you need to sort out. These are things that you have "stored" away or put aside in your mind because you do not know what to do with it or you do not have the time to deal with it. It may also represent your perceived faults and shortcomings.

Books- To see books in your dream, indicate calmness. You are moving toward your goals at a slow and steady pace.Books also symbolize knowledge, intellect, information and wisdom. In particular, to see an open book in your dream, means that you are able to grasp new ideas with ease. If the book is closed, then it represents your allure and mysteriousness. Consider the type of book for additional clues. The dream may represent your calling into a specific field of work or an area that you need to devote more study to. Alternatively, the dream could be telling you not to judge a book by its cover. 

Library- To dream that you are in a library, signifies your search for knowledge and your hunger for ideas. You may be trying to seek out new meanings to life. You need to study and evaluate your situation before taking action. If the library is disorganized, then it suggests that too much information is coming at you at the same time. You are having difficulty sorting it all out. To see a library in your dream, symbolizes the knowledge you have accumulated over the years.

Soccer-  To dream that you are playing soccer, suggests that you are suppressing your sexuality or aggression and expressing it in a more socially acceptable manner. From a Freudian perspective, sports generally serve as a disguise for attitudes about sex as a aggressive act. Hence soccer can be seen as a pun on "sock her". Alternatively, the game of soccer parallels to how you function and how you run your life when confronted with challenges. You need to be able to think quickly on your feet, if you are going to succeed. The soccer game also reflects you competency, integrity, strengths and weaknesses.

Windows- To see a window in your dream, signifies bright hopes, vast possibilities and insight.If the window of a house is dark, then it indicates a loss to your perception or vitality.To see a tinted window in your dream, represents your need for privacy. You are keeping some aspects of yourself hidden. You also want to remain ambiguous. To dream that you are washing windows, suggest that you need some clarity in some matter. Something is not clear. To dream that you are looking out the window, signifies your outlook on life, your consciousness and your point of view. It also refers to your intuition and awareness. You may be reflecting on a decision. Or you need to go out into the larger world and experience life. If you are looking in the window, then it indicates that you are doing some soul searching and looking within yourself. It is time for some introspection. To see another face in the window in your dream, suggests that you are feeling emotionally distant and physically detached. Also consider the emotion depicted on the face.
