This is one of the most architecturally beautiful library I have ever visited and I have visited some very old libraries in Europe. I highly recommend you just pop in. They also have Music in the Stacks if you can catch that.

It is a beautiful collection of books -- and so rare in this day of digital libraries. Worth a visit.

This is a lovely library and something to see! The library looks exactly as it does on the picture. It's really a Baltimore monument in lovely Mt. Vernon area of town and a must see!

There are librarians there. Perhaps if you call ahead and ask for a special tour - you may get it. Otherwise, you are indeed restricted to the first floor. It is a real shame. But as everyone has said - it is truly... More
