Historical passion for reading has stimulated the “book consumption” and inspired the evolution of large book collections and libraries. For millions of us around the world who have learned through libraries, these buildings will always be special. Not only are they storehouses of thousands of years of knowledge, they are also places to study, to browse serendipitously, to dream, to snooze, to admire beautiful printed books, to watch other people and even to flirt.
Libraries are romantic places and their architecture has often been, along with that of cathedrals and temples, the finest civilisation has had to offer.
The purpose of this post is to encourage you to visit the library near you. You will probably not have a chance to go to Colombia to read for hours in Biblioteca España, but that library you are passing every day on your way to school or work, will also welcome you – with a magic of books and the charm of the librarian. Although there are an impressive number of libraries throughout the world , only a few manage to attract those passionated about reading. Let`s see which they are. P.S. :A good book deserve to be read in a beautiful library!
