17 of the Most Unusual Libraries in the World

17 of the Most Unusual Libraries in the World

I’ve always loved libraries. In my youth I was a regular visitor to our local library where the world opened up to me through books and reading.

A few months ago I created a post, 20 of the Most Beautiful Libraries in the World, at my author blog. So many people enjoyed it that I have created another post with images of 17 of the most unusual libraries in the world.

Important Note: these are not my photos and credits are provided with a mouseover of each image.
