Anne & Jerome Fisher Fine Arts Library

The Fiery Red Brick Library!

More of spectacle to see than anything, the Anne & Jerome Fisher Fine Arts Library specializes in contemporary and historical aspects of art, architecture, historic preservation, studio art, and urban design. Built in late 1888 by Frank Furness, it stood out as unique for its time due to the red brick building when most architects were designing with marble.

 

It stands as one of many libraries for UPenn students. However, it is also open to the public all year round to the public (with the exception of the end of semesters when it's held open specifically for UPenn students). It is open Monday - Thursday 8:30 am - midnight, Friday 8:30 am- 9 pm, Saturday 10 am - 9 pm, and Sunday 10 am - midnight. Truly a magnificent structure to see!
