Recommendation | New York Public Library

I visited the New York Public Library(NYPL) main branch in Bryant Park today, which gave me a strong shock because of its fantastic building and academic atmosphere.

Public Catalog Room

As Wikipedia says, the NYPL is the second largest public library in the U.S. which founded in 19 century, and it maintains 53,000,000 books and other items. Some journals and rare books are especial offer to scholars or experts who had made an appointment before. It also offers some popular culture such as books about film, sculpture, music and television. When I stepped into the Reading Room, there were so many people reading or searching the Internet quietly, their dedicated faces infected me a lot.

The Classical Stairs

The NYPL also attracted so many tourists all around the world, it offers free exhibitions and souvenir in some specific areas and allows photographing. Maybe another element which attracts people is the ancient but fantastic architecture there. The main branch retaining the original feature perfectly such as the columns and windows which gave me a shock of the reappearance of history.

The Main Entrance

As far as I am concerned, we really need more time to update our knowledge in the fast pace of daily life, and a rich inner world could give us a sense of peace. If you also feel interested in NYPL, please click here to get more information.

Thank you for reading!
