Bapst Library
Bapst Library was recently recognized as one of the most beautiful college libraries in the country—twice!

It's not just Eagles who appreciate the allure of BC's iconic art library. Two recent lists include Bapst among the most beautiful college libraries in America. Town & Country and the travel website Thrillist each featured one of BC's most beloved buildings alongside some fascinating other choices—check out Diné College's library in Shiprock, New Mexico (Thrillist), or Georgetown's Rigg's Library (Town & Country), which is a shining example in cast iron.

Even if you're far from Chestnut Hill, wander around Bapst for a few minutes with this self-guided tour of the building's stained glass treasures, and enjoy its beauty for yourself.
