We provide training for all docents in the history of the city library and the buildings magnificent sculptures, murals, chandeliers and decorative ceilings and the beautiful fountains and decorated steps of the art installation, Spine, in the gardens, among other wonders. All tours are free. Groups and individuals may schedule tours any time the library is open.
