The George Peabody Library is a beautiful library that is a must see for any bibliophile in the Baltimore, Maryland area. The library, designed by architect Edmund G. Lind, was opened in 1878.
The stacks of the library are impressive and awe-inspiring
Five tiers of balconies surround the reading area of the library
The cathedral-like space is heightened with the giant skylight that stretches the width of the room
The public is not allowed to go upstairs into the stacks, but there is plenty to entertain the curios on the first floor
You can browse the card catalog, they didn’t seem to have any books on Tiny Hippos, though
There are plenty of study tables that can be used for research purposes
I found this strange Magic Lantern device, is it bigger on the inside, perhaps?
We had a great time in the beautiful George Peabody Library
