Re: Beautiful libraries (comment)

Beautiful libraries: What a great thread!
I certainly haven't been in all the featured libraries, but one of my hobbies is "collecting" college libraries, meaning that whenever I visit a college for some reason, or go to a college town, I try to visit the college library. So we could have a separate thread for "most beautiful college libraries."
But I digress...to get back to the subject at hand: I'd nominate 2 libraries for the "most beautiful" list, although they're quite different in kind from the very large public libraries offered in the link.
