Sleeping in the library

It was 1889 that British Prime Minister William Gladstone began moving his book collection from Hawarden Castle in Wales to a new building less than a mile away.  The new building is now known as Gladstone's Library.  His intention was to offer it as a "residential" library where patrons could stay overnight and take meals.  It still operates in that manner today.
