Anyone who loves books knows how cool it is to be around several of them, whether they are in a library, a bookstore, or even at home with your own collection. But around the world there are many places where you can enjoy the contact with a huge collection of books, just the way we were shown one day: on paper, leather-bound (or not), full of pages just waiting to be turned.
Architecturally interesting, luxurious, full of history, or high tech, these libraries are fascinating. How about taking a look now and choose your can't-miss tours for your next vacation?
