So I decided to do something a little fun this Monday! Why not take a little vacation to some fabulous libraries that we all wish we could visit! Since today is Memorial Day I've decided to not share a snippet, more or less because writing Mystic hasn't really happened lately, revisions and a new WiP has been in progress!!
So without further ado, let's start our journey!!
New York Public Library
It is one of the greatest libraries in the world, and is often referred to as the museum-library. At present time the library repository counts up to 43, 3 million scientific documents and 15, 5 million books. Apart from books it contains pictures, plates, engravings of famous and lesser-known artists granted together with books.
Library of Duchess Anna Amalia in Weimar, Germany
The library located in Weimar is more famous as Goethe’s Library; in 1797-1832 the poet was its constant visitor. The library contains the richest collection of The Faust editions and musical manuscripts, handwritten books and ancient maps. During the fire of 2004 the library archives were severely damaged, however, now the library is completely renewed.
Library of Alexandria
Nowadays it is the main Egyptian library, the cultural centre located on the seashore of the Mediterranean in the city of Alexandria. The library is the memorial of the Royal Library of Alexandria destroyed in Ancient times and the modern research and educational centre at the same time.
St. Florian Library, Austria
The library is located in the eastern side wing of St Florian Abbey. It had been built in 1744-1750 by G. Hayberger. The library ceiling is painted by Altomonte and the rococo gallery stretches along the walls.
So there are just a few libraries around the world that look amazing!! Do you have a bookstore that you'd love to go to? A library of your very own that you adore? Happy Monday!!
