Gorgeous Library!
2020年2月
The (free) entrance was a little tricky to find since this library was housed inside the Peabody Institute. Just walk inside the main door of the white Peabody Institute with the large white columns. There was an information desk just inside the building with a person who directed us to the library. The library was a sight to behold with fascinating books on the shelves. A friend told me that this library was the inspiration for the library in Beauty and the Beast. I could not find anything to back this up but it was a gorgeous library on its own. We were only allowed on the first floor and photography was not a problem. You could spend a quick 5 minutes just taking it in or you could spend more time browsing through some of the books. I was glad that I had the chance to visit!

Restroom: one staff member said there were none while another staff member directed my husband to one at the Institute next door. You just have to ask the right person! ;)

One for the "Gram
2019年10月
My daughter goes to school in Baltimore, so I made time during one visitor's weekend to stop in at the Peabody Library. It's free, part of the Johns Hopkins campus.

The main point of this is to take pictures. NOTE: give up your fantasy of going up to the higher levels; you can't. You will be taking the same pictures from the floor as everyone else. It's pretty fun people watching. The pictures will be cool because it is a really beautiful space - floor, walls (of books), ceiling, all of it.

The Peabody is a must-see. Check the website for the limited visitor hours to plan your visit. Truly spectacular, especially if you are a photographer.

Peabody Library - Where Books Soar To The Sky
2019年11月
Because I'm a library lover, I couldn't pass up the chance to visit The Peabody Library in Baltimore.This library was bestowed on the people of Baltimore as a gift from philanthropist George Peabody.The Peabody is blessed with 300,000 volumes comprising the John Hopkins University special collection. Although the library is majestic and of monumental knowledge proportions, the current space also serves as popular event happening, backdrop for films and TV shows and is a real draw for destination and local weddings.

The building itself is considered one top the most stunning libraries in North America, as the spot is an architectural wonder. Although the outside is impressive, the view inside blew me away. It is a 'Gilded Age' marvel, an absolute treasure that is as powerful as the knowledge contained within.The Peabody incorporates a dramatic Neo-Greco design and as I entered the grand reading room, my eyes were drawn to the 61 foot latticed atrium above the floor, dwarfing even a 1/2 dozen of the tallest NBA players stacked on top of each other. The library has a dramatic 'stack room' with 5 tiers of ornamental cast iron balconies with railings outfitted in ornate screens and brimming with books that appear to be soaring to the sky. The black and white marble floor is polished and shiny like a recently Zamboni-watered ice rink. The classical faux columns are Corinthian in design and embellished with gold leaf. The detailing is astonishing, from Greek decorative borders to various floral motifs in ironworks

Housed within this gloriously cavernous facility, that was immensely appealing to the bookworm inside me, is a repository of information dating from the 18th century to the early 20th. Almost every subject is covered and although I had an urge to take a book back to the hotel, books can only be read inside the library. To accommodate this policy, many alcoves on the ground floor, each with a long worktable, become quiet reading places for visitors. The overall space feels welcoming and not of the 'do not touch me' vibe typical of museums and prestigious libraries and the furniture looks like sophisticated Ethan Allen. The combination of a church-like architectural profile and the remarkable collection of books, have prompted The Peabody to be dubbed the: 'Cathedral of Books'.

On my way to the rare books room, up a few flight of stairs (you get a workout here), I noticed Ben Franklin titles (the face of the US $100 bill) not 1st editions. Then an irreplaceable treasure, a 1st edition of Charles Darwin's: On The Design Of The Species, still intact with its origin binding. I felt 'evolved' in the presence of this book and it sent a mildly alarming sensation through me that said to myself: this book deserves the continued TLC that it has already enjoyed. My spirits of Darwins Theory were enhanced with my recollection of the movie, 'Inherit The Wind' with Spencer Tracy and Fredrick March, who gave a resounding performance as an anti-Darwinian.The rare book room contained other prestigious book holdings. A book of hours (took so long to write) crafted by monks where the pages are vellum with wide margins, sides and bottom. Book of hours are unique works of art created for the glory of God, and monks who produced them were contemporaries of Gutenberg. Of particular interest to me was a book by Edward Maybridge titled: Animal Locomotion and was produced using the high tech Electro-Photograhic of the time. The printing is astonishing and pictures amazing by todays standards.....the modern-day celebrated photographer, Karch, would be proud. Horses in motions were his 1st subjects as he lined up camera's with trip wires and snapped photos of the trusty steads as they passed him. He did this to settle a bet, to see if, when a horse galloped, all 4 legs left the ground at the same time. They did. and he won bet. More book gems include: a 1617 edition of Don Quixote... and more...much more.

Sparingly book thieves have hit The Peabody, but the library is more concerned about the publics lack of interest in visiting any library at all. It's the impact of the internet's global access to online info that negates the need to access the libraries repositories of knowledge. I, personally, find no life activity more pleasurable than picking up a book in a hands-on contact manner and devour the smarts inside.

So, if you want to appeal to the bookworm inside of you as well as view an architectural gem of a library outfitted with a significant repository of knowledge........then try the....
Peabody Library....................Where Books Soar To The Sky.

A true sense of history . Books from the ages . The library was charismatic. Pictures don't allow you to feel the atmosphere.
