Old Vienna Library Part 1

The Old Library in Vienna is beautiful!  Not to be compared to the new one.  So if you walk into a building and it (A) looks like it was remodeled in the 1970’s (B) Looks like any library from the States (C) is packed with actual students studying or (D) they did not charge you at the door… you’re in the wrong place.  But they will give you directions!
