Unlike the rest of Glantri, the capital does have a middle class; in fact, that group has become the largest segment of the city’s populace. Middle-class people run the shops and make most of the city’s conveniences and luxuries possible. The quiet streets and canals of the Middle Class Quarter wind through blocks of modest tenements and homes. The district also houses a number of scholars, sages, and scribes, as well as entire guilds pertaining to scholarly professions. These professionals prefer to establish themselves near Glantri City library, a huge and ancient stone tower rising in the center of the district. While it remains superior to most libraries in the Known World, the libraries of the Great School have long since surpassed Glantri City’s public collection in size and completeness.
