Library Interior and Exterior Design Details

Fri, 09/26/2014 - 4:46pm -- CChiu

Upon entering the Main Library, visitors will note the unique interior space, especially the recessed reading court located at the center of the library. What other public library can you think of that has a live palm tree in the middle of it? Other details you may notice are the round lamps surrounding the reading court and in the children’s area, high ceilings, natural light from the high windows, and woodwork tiles at the circulation desk.

Season 4 of Downton Abbey did not disappoint! No one does nuanced drama, subtlety, and snide remarks like Downton. Anyways, no spoilers! Here is a list of Downton Abbey Read Alikes that we hope fans of Downton will enjoy. If the book is checked out, please put a hold on it at the Reference desk or by calling the Reference desk.
