The Jay Walker private library offers a candy store of historical books and artifacts delighting all walks of life and interests. The pictures speak for themselves, and I’d be lost for words if invited to view this amazing collection. Built in 2002, it is a 3600 sq. ft. multi-leveled library featuring rare maps, floating floors holding historical objects to highlight “the history of human invention.”

The library invites school-aged children, librarians and governmental workers to peruse the library within an environment enhanced with lighting and background music.
