User / Nikon66 / Reading Room at the University of Michigan Law School in Ann Arbor
Mark / 4,113 items
The University of Michigan Law Library’s Reading Room is located within the Law Quadrangle on central campus. Designed in the English Gothic style, it is one of the most recognizable buildings on campus. The building was constructed between 1924 and 1933 by the architectural firm York and Sawyer, with funds donated by attorney and alumnus William W. Cook.

The Reading Room is 244 feet long and 44 feet wide. Sound is dampened by a sound-deadening cork floor. Some 50 feet high, the ceiling is made of large medallions of decoratively-painted plaster in blue and gold separated by massive beams. Leaded-glass windows flood the reading room with light. Colorful stained-glass seals representing 172 colleges and universities from all over the world are contained on the glass panels. Adding to the natural light are twenty-two candelabra-chandeliers hanging from the ceiling, as well as lamps placed at each study table.
