“Book lovers will understand me, and they will know too that part of the pleasure of a library lies in its very existence.” – Jan Morris
I recently happened across this Kansas City library and it is easily one coolest libraries I’ve seen. <–not an oxymoron.
In my opinion this creative design puts it alongside the other amazing libraries that make me smile:
Bibliothèque Nationale de France in Paris, externally shaped like bookends.
Abbey library of Saint Gall – Switzerland
Melk Monastery Library – Austria
Real Gabinete Português de Leitura – Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
And finally Jay Walker’s private library! That lucky, lucky dog! What I wouldn’t do to have this in my home.
