It won't take you very long to take a look at the Peabody Library - but do go in and see one of the USA's great libraries. Visitors can go in and see the magnificent reading room, surrounded on three sides by floors of books on open shelves. The Peabody also mounts displays on American writers - at the moment on the short but creative life of Stephen Crane. A visit won't take long, but you won't regret it.

I have never seen a more beautiful library space. From the moment you step through the doors you are surrounded by rich woods, antiques, and the feeling of old world elegance. Looking up, you see a multi-storied open space with shelves and shelves of beautiful books. We were very fortunate to have an opportunity to spend the evening there for our son's wedding reception. All the guests agreed that it was the most beautiful location for a reception they had ever seen. The staff was wonderful to work with and ever detail was attended to. The Peabody is a must-see sight for anyone visiting Baltimore. You will not be disappointed.

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.

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.
