Read up on it: Best of Libraries

Ahhh libraries… There’s nothing like the musty smell of old books and a librarian so ancient she looks as though she’s been around since mastodons roamed the earth. Well before you toss that old, dingy public library card, take a gander at these beautiful works of art. It’s been said that you can’t judge a book by its cover, but we’d have to agree that you can definitely judge a library by its façade. Here is some hardcore library porn for all you book worms out there - feast your eyes on these architectural gems.
