If you've seen the animated "Beauty and the Beast" you'll walk into this library and be transported to the scene when the Beast "gives" his Beauty his glorious library. Available for business receptions and weddings, it's exquisite.

Love the old charm of an old library, especially the smell of old books. Wooden tables and chairs. The old filing system of rolex cards, which kids nowadays don't come across often.

The architecture, the resources, the quiet practice spaces. This place is magnificent. Take the time to make a visit.

The detail inside this building is amazing from the railings to the pillars. It's so neat to think how old this is and who may have been here researching things in the past. Definitely worth the quick stop. Make sure you check the hours had I not we would not been able to see it. I originally was planning on... More

So much effort goes into schooling that as my child entered college I was stunned at the amount of attentive care that had been placed on him by the great city of Princeton and the devout religious dedication towards his upbringing.I hate extended families.Too much great talent.I can sing too.So, boys choir, please don't go there.

A must visit. It's a small but is a beautiful architecture. Felt like reading books once walked in. Had a chance to see some old books over hundred years old - some VIPs had visited the day before and the displayed books hadn't been put away yet.

Amazing place! We were there for a wedding reception. The elegance of this historic building coupled with the elegance of the bride, her lovely mother who organized the venue, made it so special!

The Moon travel book said it would be open. It was not! Should have been open from 10:00 to 10:15 on Saturday morning for a quick peek at the beautiful main room. Wrong.

We attended a wedding and reception held in the Peabody museum. The staff was very accommodating and pleasant. The library oozes class. It was a great place to have a great wedding.

This is one of the world's great library buildings and it is a must see if you are in the area, even if you just look in through the door. But if you can, get a guided tour and look at the collections or exhibits as the books which belong in the marvellous room are well worth seeing too. George... More
