Cool libraries

This is a typical picture of a library: you just feel overwhelmed. (Key words: Oh My God, knowledge, 17-th century, other centuries).
Melk library in Austria.

At Trinity College.

In Babylonian times (or was it when Rome had its peak?) the one and only library contained as much as two books, both of them chained to the walls. Today it is quite the opposite:

A Rainbow library.

Then, there are hyper modern buildings as well as simple wooden arrangements on the countryside... All of them containing books. (More cool libraries found here.)

In Italy.

In Thailand.
And the best part:

Cardiff Public Library.
Kansas City Public Library.
