If you haven’t yet taken a look inside the newly reopened Central Library in Downtown St. Louis, you’re in for a treat. St. Louis Public Library opened the doors of the historic building on Dec. 9, revealing a space that is drastically changed. The century-old Central Library had been brought gracefully into the 21st century with technological, logistical and aesthetic updates, while preserving the iconic architecture of the building (designed from 1907-1912 by architect Cass Gilbert).

In our January issue, we shared some highlights of the renovation, straight from St. Louis Public Library Executive Director Waller McGuire. Photographer Jennifer Silverberg took a tour of the building, as well—here’s what she came back with. If this doesn’t convince you to go check it out for yourself, we’re not sure what will!
