Scranton Public Library Periodicals Room

As we are finishing up with our final changes to the Centennial Book Collection that we will be launching soon, I wanted to point out one of my favorite pictures of the Reference Room at the library. The formal name of the room above is the Barrel Vault Room because of its wonderful concave ceiling. When the library was built the floor was open to the downstairs. In this picture you can view the beautiful railings and lighting that was in the room. As the library needs changed the floor was closed and its now the Periodicals Room.
