On the north side of the green is Dartmouth College's central Baker Berry Library. The reserve corridor on the lower level houses an impressive mural called Epic of American Civilization , by José Clemente Orozco (1883–1949). The renowned Mexican muralist taught and painted at Dartmouth from 1932 to 1934. The mural follows the course of civilization in the Americas from the time of the Aztecs to the present.

Go upstairs and enjoy the view of the campus from the Tower Room on the 2nd floor. This collegiate wood-paneled room is one of the library's loveliest.

The adjacent Sanborn House also has ornate woodwork, plush leather chairs and books lining the walls, floor to ceiling, on two levels. It is named for Professor Edwin Sanborn, who taught for almost 50 years in the Department of English. This is where students (and you!) can enjoy a traditional teatime each afternoon.
