“Our son read us the Declaration of Independence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

At this library location, in the West End district, there is an actual print copy of the Declaration of Independence from 1776. It is located on the 7th floor of this library. It was exciting to see this piece of history and our son read it to us, having to decipher all the misspellings (the f's at the printers must have looked like an s to the printer when looking at the blocks backwards). This was quite an unexpected treat and cost us only the 75 cents we paid for parking.
