The Peabody Stack Room of the George Peabody Library, Baltimore, Maryland. The George Peabody Library, formerly the Library of the Peabody Institute of the City of Baltimore, dates from the founding of the Peabody Institute in 1857. It contains more than 300,000 titles—most of which date from the eighteenth to the early twentieth centuries. Renowned for its striking architectural interior, the Peabody Stack Room contains five tiers of ornamental cast-iron balconies, which rise dramatically to the skylight 61 feet above the floor.
In addition to its traditional use as a research library, it is available as an event space. The library accommodates wedding ceremonies, wedding receptions, private dinners, holiday parties and lectures. (via Lisa Pisa)
