Peabody Library Reviews
We went out of our way for a visit to a library!!!! So worth it... The most amazing atrium library It will leave you speechless. ...and wanting to run up the old stairs check out all the books on..... more »
Free admission. Short visit to view the attrium. Not much to do other than take pictures. In and out in less than 15 minutes. more »
My daughter wanted to visit this library. Parking is limited, we had to park several blocks away. After a long hot walk we arrived to find out you can only access the first floor. 😑 I found it quite boring but my daughter was in awe and enjoyed skimming the books. It’s a beautiful library for taking pictures though.
As a wedding photographer with a background in architecture and design, Urban Row Photography would love the opportunity to capture a wedding in this historic and incredibly unique space! The lighting, and unending stacks of books with metalwork details and the black and white floor are so picturesque... being located in the heart of Mt. Vernon is especially great for portraits too. Love how timeless a space like this is!
