R is for Ridgefield’s Jay Walker Private Library

letter rUnlike yesterday’s post in the A to Z Challenge, I actually have a library that matches today’s letter. It’s the Jay Walker Private Library in Ridgefield, Connecticut. This library is also known as the “Walker Library of the History of Human Imagination,” and it’s certainly full of imagination.

Sadly, this library is not open to the public. However, it serves as the personal reading space of American inventor and entrepreneur Jay Scott Walker. This 3,600 sq. ft. library holds over 50,000 volumes and has a maze-like design with artwork inspired by artist M. C. Escher.
