Been here on the Christmas so it was all dressed up for Christmas, with a big tree on the entrance hall. Visit the library all around, the different rooms and appreciate the construction and how everything is organized.

If you want to see the original toys that inspired the Winnie the Pooh stories they can be found in the childrens’ section here. You can just walk in, the toys are inside a display case with a few information panels including a wall map of the hundred acre wood.

I almost wish I were a New Yorker so I could visit this library regularly. This is heaven on earth for a person who loves books.
