I was able to get a tour of the reading room recently which was a delight. The Elizabethan architecture was grand and viewing the paintings in the next room was great fun as well. In the public exhibit which can be enjoyed without a reservation, there's a folio on display as well as other printed books from the same time period. There was one particular display featuring books with mistakes that was quite interesting. It's small, but the Folger Shakespeare Library is definitely worth a visit.
