Such a lovely library! You really feel like you've been transported to Hogwarts. This is a quiet study area and whether you're coming in to do work or just to check the space out, you can pretty much hear a pin drop. There's an abundance of signs to remind you to be quiet as you make your way up the stairs and before you enter the room. Even with its lack of noise, I feel like I would be distracted by folks coming in and out of the room but plenty of students are in there, hard at work!

You could browse the books in the reading room for hours. On the one hand it was incredibly frustrating for me to see all the books with no rhyme or reason, but at the same time interesting to see what the next shelf held.

Come here for the Harry Potter-esque reading room! Remember, no talking inside the quiet areas!

Overall this is a good place on campus to show visitors.

Near the main entrance, they have tables which are good for eating or meeting up with friends.

This library is also connected to the Allen Library which has a lot more seating and work spaces.

Go Huskies!

What a gorgeous library, worth seeing but doesn't take much time to look at. Plan to visit either 1) in March when the cherry blossoms are blooming on campus or 2) when it's sunny, because the sun shining through the stained glass is wonderful.
