A temple of books
A post at The Abbeville Manual of Style about an image gallery of libraries features a gorgeous photo of the George Peabody Library at the Peabody Institute here in Baltimore.
Any library bears an aspect of the sacred, as a storehouse of our collective experience and learning, but some, like the Peabody, embody that sense of awe in their architecture. Look at some others at Curious Expeditions.
Take off your hat and lower your voice. You stand in no ordinary place.
