Central Library Review

The elegant, etched-graphite central staircase and elaborate ceiling ornamentation make this no ordinary library. With a gallery space on the second floor and famous literary names engraved on the walls, this building is well worth a walk around. A 20-minute tour of the impressive eco-roof garden is given during the spring and summer seasons. Pre-registering is required.
