For the love of libraries November 18, 2009

I think most young bibliophiles would agree with me in saying that seeing the library in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast was a major influence in their life (or at least their daydreams). And when I stumbled on this compendium of the worlds most beautiful libraries  by the “Curious Expeditions” blog I could not help but be entranced. It is truly astounding and breathtaking. (NB: I can tell you from personal experience that the picture of Vassar Library in Poughkeepsie, New York does not do it justice. I felt like I was in Hogwarts when I visited.) Enjoy!

I always admired Belle for her bookishness, and the Beast’s library is the library I imagine when I think of a gorgeous, ornate room full of every book imaginable. Of course, that was before I saw this collection of pictures. My next vacation will definitely be planned around one of these places. If only I could pick a favorite.
