What makes the new 300,000 square-foot Nashville Public Library great is not only the massive granite, limestone and brick facade, the giant book statue, the marble floorings, arched doorways, vaulted ceilings and wrought metalwork . . .

. . . or the courtyard with formal garden and fountain . . .

It is the research facilities, the 500,000 volumes of books and special services that make the library one the best in the country.
