America's Most Beautiful College Libraries: Linderman

Linderman Library, Lehigh University, PA

A recent renovation to this library painstakingly refreshed the Victorian stained-glass rotunda and grand reading room—to the point that 14 different shades of gold paint were tried before one was selected as a match for the original hue on the reading room’s carved ceiling. The result is a gleaming, worthy home for rare books like Darwin’s Origin of Species and John James Audubon’s four-volume elephant folio edition of Birds of America.
