There is a time-honored mystery cliché that if you pull on the correct book on a library shelf then a secret passage will present itself. As someone who works in a library I have always been fascinated by this idea. But unfortunately (having handled almost every book in this library at some point in time) I am sorry to report that there are no secret passages or secret rooms to be found in the Georgia State University Law Library- save for the door to nowhere located in Law Review. I am also sorry to share that despite my repeated suggestions to the architects, new building committee, and anyone else who will listen there will not be a secret passage in the new Law Library.
I am not giving up.
With an eye to persuade everyone that we could use a little mystery in the new law school building and particularly in the law library, I share the following lists of hidden doors, passages, and rooms:
Bookriot’s 10 Kick-ass Secret Passage Bookshelves
Huffington Post’s 10 Secret Rooms and Hidden Passageways
Buzzfeed’s 31 Beautiful Hidden Rooms And Secret Passages
Houzz’s list of secret rooms
And if all else fails, we can always build our own with a little help from B. Light Design
