The main hall of the Library is enormous, lit by tall arching windows and a great hanging chandelier. Although quiet, many people come and go, borrowing, returning, and reading books. Across the walls are maps of cities, countries, and the known world. You wonder how anyone, even spending their whole life, could learn all that is in this great room. Some think of the Library as being dark, although this simply results from the wood paneled walls and crowded in shelves.
