Libraries get a bad rap for being quiet, boring places where strict old ladies work. In reality, libraries are great places to read, study, explore, play, and celebrate. When St. Louis opened a public library in 1893, their collection had grown from 1,500 volumes to 90,000. By 1901 funds were being collected to build a newer, larger library and by 1912 it became a reality. Today, this stunning library is the definition of a hidden gem.
