Fodor's Review

This celebrated Art Deco edifice is the anchor, its monumental facade resembling an open book with bronze panels. Inside, this cathedral to knowledge houses more than a million catalogued books, magazines and multimedia materials, and serves as a respite for those requiring quiet study, free Wi-Fi, or a quick bite from the café (run by local pie maker Four & Twenty Blackbirds).
