Coolest Libraries

Posted on Other Stuff 26

Most people probably think that libraries are all about being quiet, studying for tests and finding places to hang out with your friends… but there’s more to libraries than just that. Take these photos for example of incredible architecture and design.

No, these aren’t scenes from dramatic movies or prototypes of what libraries could look like. Each and every one of these formidable rooms exist somewhere in the world. They are home to books, knowledge and beauty… they aren’t your average public library.
