Mr Monkey went into the Map Room, which was where maps used to be kept. There aren't any maps there now, but there are some old photographs of the Library to look at. Mr Monkey was impressed by the linenfold carving of the panelling around the room, and by the thick of the fire door between the old and new parts of the library. In the event of a fire, the door will hold it for an hour.
