Here’s to Libraries, Number Six!

BeineckeRareBookThe Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library, Yale University (Connecticut) is, according to their website, “one of the world’s largest libraries devoted entirely to rare books and manuscripts and is Yale’s principal repository for literary archives, early manuscripts, and rare books.”  Built in 1963, the library has roughly 500,000 volumes and several million manuscripts.

“What is more important in a library than anything else — than everything else — is the fact that it exists.”  (Archibald MacLeish, Pulitzer Prize winning American poet and former Librarian of Congress)
