Readers’ Choice: 20 More Beautiful College Libraries From Around the World

Recently we shared our picks for the 25 most beautiful college libraries in the world, asking our readers to comment with their own favorites if they hadn’t made the list. And comment you did, dear readers! We therefore feel compelled to offer this follow-up post made up entirely of libraries suggested by you, in your infinite wisdom. We do have a few caveats: many of your suggestions, great libraries as they were, were not college or university libraries, and so were disqualified. Others we couldn’t find photos of. In addition, though many of you commented asking (not always entirely nicely) for more foreign submissions, the overwhelming number of actual suggestions were for American and British universities, so go figure. We’ve tried to represent a mix here. Click through to check out 20 more of the most beautiful college libraries from around the world — chosen by you — and bask just a little more in the beauty of learning.
