Best Rainy-Day Reading Place 

Cuyahoga County Public Library, South Euclid/Lyndhurst Branch

In 1928, this unique stone mansion with Gothic arches was the French-château-style home of South Euclid farmboy-turned-milk-millionaire William E. Telling. But it's been a library for the last 50 years, and it features a cozy reading room that's a soothing refuge on a drizzly or snowy day. Just walk past the main desk down a short hallway and you're in the small "Mystery Room," which was Telling's original library. The leaded-glass windows, rough-hewn door frames, vaulted ceiling with hand-decorated beams, and fireplace give the room a special aura. And on your way out, spend some time in the Telling greenhouse, where Glamours and GQs now share sunny space with his frog pond.
