Libraries around the world

There are libraries and then there are Libraries -- big, small, specialized, whatever.

Libraries are soooooo awesome and all true ‘bookaholics’  love a Library.

But, alas, I fear that in this age of the Kindle and Spindle (Just kidding about the Spindle but it rhymed), Libraries are fast becoming a thing of the past.

Sadly, in many cities including ours, Libraries are being phased out or severely scaled down in their hours of operation because of budget problems.

So, while they still exist and before the Kindle does away with the physical library, you can view 15 truly awesome Libraries that still exist.

For some reason the famous Trinity College Library in Ireland (shown above) and the huge Library of Congress along with other notables are not included in this list. 

But the 15 that are pictured are also big and beautiful. HERE’S THE LINK.
