"Tons of books! Miles of books! Cascades of books!" -Lumiere and Cogsworth (the candle and the clock in beauty and the beast). I really do feel like I'm in a castle! And there is even a "west wing" which is forbidden. There is a sign at the base of the bigdarkwooden staircase saying, "fellows only." I snuck up there last night but the floor creaks too much and I am afraid of getting caught. Anyway, isn't the library splendid! They have a stash of books that are over 300 years old and I am also forbidden to go in that room (there'a picture). It is under high security so there is not sneaking in there. I wouldn't anyway- I want to respect the rules.
