East Coast Adventure: The Providence Athenaeum

The Providence AthenaeumSpring 2015 058

The Providence Athenaeum is one of the oldest libraries in the country, and Amy proved how well she knows me when she included it in my tour. This place is a bibliophile’s dream. The second floor is open to the first, making you feel like you’re in a catacomb of books. You can stroll along the second floor walkways and find various nooks and crannies among the shelves. It was odd and surprisingly wonderful to find a library with almost no computers and an honest-to-goodness card catalog still intact. I wanted to sit at a second floor desk overlooking the main room with a notebook and pen in hand.

    This place really does have “Courtney” written all over it. Very cool!
