“Spectacular interior”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

As an old building fan, I was advised to peek inside and was so glad I did. What a fabulous reading room! Three story space surrounded by the old book collection on open ornate stacks. Really worth stepping inside.

“Beautiful building”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

This two story library is amazing.I attended a charity event here and the library lent the air of a movie to the festivities.The library is in the Mt Vernon area which has a park shaped like a cross.There are also other attractions in the immediate area.

“The most beautiful room in Baltimore”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

I take visitors here because you just can't believe what the library looks like. The library is a haven for geneologists. It is also a wedding reception rental spot, so I don't think it's open on the weekend. Go see it. Now.

“incredible architecture”
Reviewed May 3, 2012

This is one of the best architectural interiors in BAltimore...beautiful set up for a party and maybe even better if you just get to walk in when its empty.
