Cincinnati Series: the Mercantile Library

While noting themselves as the "convergence between curiosity and knowledge", the Mercantile Library is also a beautiful treasure. I felt privileged just stepping into the room and witness the wonder of the display of the knowledge. This library was founded as the Young Men's Mercantile Library Association in 1835. This current library is its fourth site, and it has been there since 1908. 

Although founded as a young men's library, the current events and programming appeals not only to men. The literary journey: no man's land is catered to the female members of the library will be held in February 16th.
