Touring the Detroit Public Library

Link to March 2 Detroit Moxie post, "Book Love: The Detroit Public Library".

Excerpt: The main branch of the Detroit Public Library is nestled in Midtown, the cultural hub of the city, and the first thing you notice is the amazing architecture, both inside and out. Cass Gilbert designed the early Italian Renaissance-style structure, which opened in 1921. The building expanded in 1963 when wings were added to both the north and south ends of the library.
