The 20 Most Beautiful Libraries on Film and TV

If you read this space with any frequency, you’ll know that Flavorwire is perhaps unnaturally fond of the beautiful library. Recently, Book Riot mused over which Doctor Who library is the best — or perhaps the most beautiful. But why stop at the Doctor Who universe? Countless gorgeous libraries have appeared on screens large and small (if only there were set designers in all of our homes), whether old and dusty, shiny and modern, underground, filled with water, or, um, animated. After the jump, 20 of the most beautiful libraries on film and television. If you don’t see your favorite here, be sure to add it to the list in the comments.
