This is the coolest place! My husband and I are not even readers but we loved waking around the library with our champagne and looking in awe at all of the incredible collections of books! So cool!

We walked by and decided to look. Did not expect it to be so cool. Ordered a couple of glasses of champagne and just enjoyed the atmosphere. Nice break in touring around.

Narrow passages leave little room to maneuver around staff vacuuming in the middle of the day. While trying to browse, we kept tripping over the long vacuum cord. And once we finally reached a room with clearance and open space the man vacuuming told us...More
