The children’s library and giant atrium on the first floor let you know that you’ve arrived at the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Library. A joint project between the university and the city, the library offers some 1.5 million volumes of work – it is the largest all-new library west of the Mississippi. The library is so much more than a feast for the mind – its public art, interesting architecture and unique gadgets on every floor engage all senses. Among its cherished prizes are special rooms devoted to Beethoven and John Steinbeck.
