New York Public Library
The biggest public library in the United States is the New York Public Library.
Believe it or not, but the first movie to the “Spiderman” series had a fleeting scene filmed here at the public library as well!
The library is home to some of the earliest copies of classic pieces of English and American literature, famous drafts from writers and other precious, valuable antique works of literature. This location also served as the central research library for New York’s public library system. It oversees 3 research libraries and 84 library branches, spread across 3 regions in New York. There are over 3 million books in the branches’ collection.
What’s worth visiting the most in the public library is actually the reading room. This is room no. 315. It is 90.5 m long, 23.8 m. wide and 15.8 m high. All around you’ll see open bookshelves and long windows. There are large chandeliers dropping from the ceiling. There are long reading tables and very comfortable chairs in the room. On the table, you will find copper lights. There are computers in the room, connected to the internet.
But for some reason it’s been switched off. I could only look at photos on display. It felt like you’re traveling to a Harry Potter movie, much like the dining hall in Hogwarts.
Everything in the library is free. Many famous writers come here to research and find information. During the Great Depression, a lot of people self-studied here at the university level. This is why nowadays there are still many shared rooms for citizens to use.
