Abstract

Description

The interior of the rotunda remains the library's chief architectural achievement. A diadem set with stained glass windows, it crowns the segmented and buttressed walls. Eight cross gables, each containing a large fan-shaped window, intersect the main roof, which culminates in an octagonal dome light. The domical roofs of the central building and wings are banded by narrow clerestories like Edward T. Potter's [William Potter's brother, also an architect] churches, and delicate iron crests decorate the roofs
