  • Beautiful ornate library with a vast collection of Browning research and material. Check out the ceiling that has been compared to the one in Disney's Beauty and the Beast. Free to visit and to admire near Baylor's campus. Quiet! Also, nice outside wooden furniture to relax and study.
  • This library is more like a museum. Absolutely gorgeous stained glass windows, architecture, wood floors, paintings, sculptures, etc. You realize it is still a library when you come upon the students studying in this beautiful place. Spectacular restrooms.
