Library eye-candy

The library I work in is due a much needed face-lift (aren't we all), which should be happening sometime in the next, ooooh....ten years, but it's going to need more than a splash of Magnolia to compete with these world-wide beauties, spotted here.


Canada

Australia

Boston


Dublin

New York

Paris

Maryland, USA

Manchester


Prague


That picture at the bottom is a dead-ringer for our living room. Not. Imagine the cleaning though...

Very interesting post! I think the Canadian and Prague library pictures are my favourites. A particularly attractive angle for the Dublin one, not sure if it always looks that nice from elsewhere...they are converting The Ambassador here into a new library, which used to be a theatre and then a venue. Can't wait, it's a two minute walk from my flat!

Sounds lovely. Sadly, our branch was built in the sixties and looks like a glorified bus shelter!

What magnificent libraries. Ours here is very unexciting and sounds a bit like the one where you work.
What wonderful pictures! I would get lost in some of those places.

Thank you for dropping in on my blog.

Best wishes

Ooooh, is it nerdy to love libraries this much? If so, I'm a nerd!

What beauties and not a dirty nappy or an inebriate in sight.

Ours is having a revamp at the moment.It will be nice but I shall miss the shabbiness in a way.

I love the Prague one, those ceiling are soooo beautiful.

In my next life, I'm going to have a library like the one Professor Henry Higgins his in "My Fair Lady" TommoX
