If you are visiting this part of St. Paul, stop in the old library. It's quite a good older type library, lots o book, city history info and just a nice place to take a break.

At on time, the "Mind of the City" was a slogan used to promote the library system. This building is worthy of something that is meant to reflect and contain the 350,000 books that compose this beautiful mind. The building was finished in 1917, in the later part of World War I. The Central Library Building is the center piece... More
