I would be most happy to while away mornings, afternoons, or evenings in this space. It inspires reading, researching, and ideas. Lehigh students are so very lucky.

Linderman is one of the most gorgeous buildings I've been in, especially for a library. Besides the breathtaking rotunda, every detail of the library is stunning. Just glance up at the ceiling in the main room and you'll see.
