The Astronomy reading room is a small reading room located within the Astronomy Tower.[1]


Bookshelves fill most of the room, with small decorative stone cherubs carrying celestial bodies and peering through telescopes perched on the columns. The room contains high ceilings with golden celestial models orbiting in mid-air. High windows provide light. This room can be accessed through the Astronomy Corridor, and an archway that goes onto the Astronomy Stairwell, leading to the Astronomy classroom. It possible that Professor Sinistra prepared her classes here or consulted books here.[1]
