Beinecke Rare Book And Manuscript Library, New Haven, CT

If rare books and manuscripts interest you, this library won’t disappoint! Worth mentioning is that the Gutenberg Bible can be found here on permanent display.

The Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library is the rare book library and literary archive of the Yale University Library in New Haven, CT. Established by a gift from the Beinecke family and given its own financial endowment, the library is financially independent of the university and is co-governed by the University Library and Yale Corporation.

Situated on Yale University’s Hewitt Quadrangle, it is one of the biggest buildings in the world dedicated to rare books and manuscripts.

Our next one is a rare sight…..

  1. The Air Force Academy Library in Colorado is supposed to be quite impressive too. I’ve only seen the outside. Maybe it’s not considered a public library.

  2. When I was in high school, research was done at the library.
    Going downtown was a treat.
    I remember spending as much time exploring the library as I did on research each time I visited. It was breathtaking for someone from a small town with a one room, but very clean and efficient public library.
