What better post to do during finals week then one on libraries? Because we're not seeing enough of them as it is.

(I've chosen a couple of my favorites from the list.)
Cornell Law School Library, Ithaca, NY
Queen’s College Library, Oxford University, Oxford, UK
George Peabody Library, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD
( you could spend HOURS here.)
Frederick Ferris Thompson Memorial Library, Vassar College, Poughkeepsie, NY
(Where my sister Selina went to school! I personally don't think this photo does it justice though..)
The University of Coimbra General Library, Coimbra, Portugal. so regal.
Old Library, St. John’s College, Cambridge University, Cambridge, UK (where my Uncle Julian went to college. So gorgeous.)
Wren Library, Trinity College, Cambridge University, Cambridge, UK.
(my aunt Camilla went here! love the sculptures.)
The Harper Library Reading Room, University of Chicago, Chicago, IL. Can you say Harry Potter?
Suzzallo Library’s Graduate Reading Room at the University of Washington, Seattle, WA. You could also probably say Harry Potter here if you wanted...
Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, Yale University, New Haven, CT. Such a bizarre building.
The Trinity College Library, aka “The Long Room,” Dublin, Ireland
Anheuser-Busch Law Library, Washington University in Saint Louis
(Just kidding this wasn't on the list but it SHOULD be.)
