★ Awesome Libraries Of The World | Inspiration for the Best Bookcases, Bookshelves & More ★
Welcome to Bibliophile Heaven
If you are a bibliophile, this is definitely the page for you! I have compiled a gallery of my favourite of examples of libraries from around the world: some small, some large, some traditional, some modern, and some just bizarre!
You will also find a list of websites which showcase my favourite personal libraries, and I hope that perhaps some examples inspire you to create your very own mini library at home.
I hope you find this collection of cool library interiors and exteriors interesting :)
Shakespeare & Company
Libraries are intriguing places full of history, stories, ideas and facts; they're just bursting with knowledge. I've always enjoyed books myself so I just love a good library!
It is often the case that libraries are located in spacious, grand buildings that are indeed full of history themselves. In many ways I think a library has the same sort of feel as a church; you can't help but be filled with wonder, and the enforced silence produces a feeling of reverence.
This page displays some of the most visually stunning, most unique or just the biggest libraries in the world.
