A fitting tower for a library - one of the most important form of institutions there is.

That is quite a tower. But for a library it is outstanding. Easy to find, just make a right and go to the clock tower and there is the library. Great choice for "A"

Now that is one fantastic tower...I have never seen anything like this on a library here. But I have not been in the big cities so take what I say with a grain of salt.
