of the number of main rooms of Downton Abbey on the ground floor, the Library is by far the most homely as mentioned by Tom Branson when discussing its cosyness when the fire is going to Miss Sarah Bunting. The room has a collection of thousands of books and has its own librarian. The Library is also where Lord Grantham spends much of his time writing letters at his desk whilst Lady Grantham and the other family members may sit opposite one another on the red sofas that face each other on either side of the fireplace.
