For those with theater or literature in their blood ..this is a lovely respite from the crowds of the Nat'l Mall. Tours are given daily by a docent and are only 45-60 mins long. It is a lovely library with a glimpse into the reading room used for free,by academics doing research. Mr Folger was a Standard Oil head who collected and donated all the manuscripts, etc here, over 275k! It is located in a lovely neighborhood directly behind the Library of Congress. we had a sidewalk cafe breakfast at the Firehook Cafe and walked over to the library for a relaxing morning tour.
