This is located in the Mt. Washington area of Baltimore, near the very first monument erected for George Washington in our nation. The world famous Peabody Institute houses this great library.

We stopped in to see the wonder of the cathedral of books. We rode in on our bikes but were told if we lock them up on the street the police will chain them (no bikes allowed around Peabody).

"WOW"...that's the response when you walk into this amazing space! We were fortunate to be invited to a wedding with dinner served at the library. The space is absolutely breathtaking! It's also very cool due to keeping the books at a lower temperature. This was a dinner we will never forget.

Walk into this library and be prepared for a bearth taking sight. It ia the most beatiful interior in the city and possibly in the state It id a place I continue to revisit and always find something new of interest and surprise. Take you camera and enjoy

I'm a bit of a bibliomaniac so I loved this place! It's absolutely beautiful and smell like lots of old books! :) The first time we went it was closed for a private event. We made it a point to go back on another day to see it...so glad we did!

The library has no weekend hours, but if you get a chance during the weekday when it is open it is definitely worth stopping by. This is a grand space, the huge mahogany door, the gold accents on the columns. Won't take long to peek inside, we found parking right on the street midday on a Friday. Church across the... More

The architecture is absolutely breath-taking. I do not think the library is open for every day use. But, I was lucky enough to be with a tour group who got to go inside and walk among the books. Thousands of old books line the shelves.
