Geisel Library is the main library building on the campus of the University of California San Diego. The unique design by architect William Pereira (in the 1960s) has made it one of the most recognizable buildings on campus, if not in the city of San Diego. The library was named for Theodor Seuss Geisel, known to most of us as the beloved children’s author Dr. Seuss. In fact, Geisel Library houses the Dr. Seuss Collection as part of its archives.

The library pans a total of eight floors, with six of those above ground and two below. It houses more than seven million books.
