Needless to say, I have a great preference for libraries with an abundance of natural sunlight, wide open windows, and a spacious room with which to capture it all in. Therefore, the Music Library has quickly become one of my favorite haunts. Natural sunlight aside, which it turns out of is very conducive to studying, the Music library has many other perks.
