The library includes a building that was once an industrial building.  Some of the equipment has been incorporated into the renovation and makes for interesting sketch subjects.  Just be aware that room is designated as SILENT. 





 There is also a second floor glass bridge which offers views of campus. 
 



Parking:   In the lot next to the library which is entered of S. 21st St..  It is $1/hour with 3 hour limit.   Or park in the garage near Freighthouse Square and take the trolly.
