Excellent library with very nice staff. Reviewers, please stop complaining about not being able to sightsee there. It is a library not a tourist attraction. The staff's priority is to protect its unique collections, and facilitate access for readers. If you can't speak Italian, you're obviously not a legitimate reader since you won't be able to understand 99% of the books. The admission policy is logical and fair, for goodness sake stop complaining.
Open to the public (non-members) Saturday 11-2 for guided tours only. The English tour I went on was in Italian as the guide apologized his English was not that good. That was disappointing. The building inside is starting to show signs of neglect and I don't recommend it as a place to visit, unless you are a member and want to use it as a library!
