The library is one of Frank Furness' greatest works, on the same level as the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. It's a nice little library on Penn's lovely campus. Recommended, provided you're actually in the area.

This is on of my favorite escapes on the University of Pennsylvania's campus. The library is well maintained, full of treasures, and the architectural elements make in a real treasure. It is very easy to find a quiet nook to read and get lost in thought and quiet.
