What travelers say:

#John Rylands Library#-merged with the University of Manchester in 1972. It is now part of the University of Manchester Library. It is said to be the oldest library in England. The exterior is very inconspicuous, and the interior is very gothic and Baroque, 1900 The toilet built is still in use so far, and the most amazing thing is that the books inside are actually available for reading. If you flip through it, it may be an 18th or 19th century book.
