These are the Most Breathtaking Libraries From All Over The World

, ,

 

Before libraries were filled with tablets and scripts. They were used to record information and ideas from everything and anything. Then, came the first library with book in Alexandria, Egypt.  It was known to be the great library of the ancient world.

The evolution of libraries, however, is not only about the books and the collections they hold, but its buildings, as well. Throughout the ages, library halls are known as among the major tourist destinations in the world, aside from the treasures they keep.

So, let us take you to the most breathtaking libraries from across the globe through the images below:
