Baker Library now has copper tops. They had been green for many years. Because of a recent Boston Globe review, many will come here for the Orozco murals. They are an interesting historical piece of art, but my wife found them quite disturbing. I found them representing a negative view of the world. A high school group was sketching the... More

As with my opinion of the campus, this is also the best of the best Ivy libraries. It's conveniently located in the center of campus and both modern and historic.

When you first see the Baker-Berry Library at Dartmouth College from the Hanover Inn and across the Green, the building, complete with a handsome bell-tower, will look very familiar. You will wonder why, until you think of Independence Hall, Philadelphia! It is almost a replica of that building until you go inside. There the main hall with its elegant black... More

Baker Library is a great facility and is run by a very dedicated staff. Like all good libraries it has plenty of material in the form of books and historic artifacts to serve many needs.

This was a remarkable library! The Baker-Berry Library has five levels, sorted by amount of noise on the floor, a fully functional student service center, a huge collection of books and a small café as well. The library's bottom floor was lined with murals and the architecture was awesome.

I take all my out of town guests to see the Orozco murals…they are historic, and impressive, thought-provoking, as there are moving topics covered. You would not expect to find such (non-quiet) murals behind the doors of a library.

you will note the Baker Library building write across the green as you arrive to Dartmouth. There is a lot more there than books. Amusing place. Visit the Baker tower and the third floor reading room and you will learn why. :)

Love love love this Library! Beautiful, historic. In Winter, Fall, Spring or summer! It really reminds me Harry Potter's school scenes.

Worth every minute...and plan to stay for a while. It takes a long time to absorb every panel. They are so beautiful and sitting in the center of the 1% makes them even more poignant .
