17 #Epic #Libraries We Have Ignored Hold More #Secrets Than You Can Imagine

The general public most likely assume that libraries are all about being quiet, boring, learning for assessments and discovering places to hang around with your mates… however there may be more to libraries than simply that. Take these pictures as an example of fantastic architecture and design. No, these are not scenes from dramatic films or prototypes of what libraries may appear to be. Each one of these bold rooms exist somewhere on earth. They’re home to books, wisdom and beauty… they are not your average public libraries.

Libraries are not just about getting shushed. They store and protect priceless knowledge all over the world. Not only that, but people have spent centuries building beautiful libraries, letting their architecture be defined by these buildings. Absolutely incredible.
