ROYAL ONTARIO MUSEUM
"Although this is the most exclusive and smallest library on this list, it was the most profound because it’s located in a part of the museum that few people would consider exploring. What’s amazing about the ROM library is that students are allowed to access rare artifacts themselves: in first-year, I requested – and read – a book from 1769 published in Cologne and printed in French. The experience made me realize the value of the library system, and its ability to preserve information that makes our society the place it is today" (Kell, 2018).
Hidden. In Museum.
