Samplergal The link is so long I couldn‘t comment. I‘ve been in this library many times and it is worth every moment. How many of these have you seen? 12mo
Lcsmcat I went to school at Peabody, and this was my favorite place to study! 12mo
Samplergal @Lcsmcat ❤️❤️❤️. I‘m from Bmore. I lived a mile from here. 12mo

kalinichta A tip for future use: when you share a link like this, you can delete the ? and everything after. It's code so the site it was copied from can track its reach, and it isn't necessary for the link to work properly. 12mo
Samplergal @kalinichta Thank you! Didn‘t know, obviously. 12mo
Clare-Dragonfly I‘ve been to that one, but that‘s all! My husband and I considered it as a wedding venue. 12mo

Easily one of the most beautiful libraries I've ever been to! The Austrian National Library 😍 I am in love.

abbsinwonderland Omg...😍 2y
BookNAround I just saw one that was simply gorgeous in Siena. It's the Piccolomini Library in the cathedral there. And the illustrated book(s) along the walls are beyond beautiful. 2y

#sizzlinsummerbooks Day 6: Library
I would like to win the lotto and use this book as my travel guide.

Librarianaut The LOC is stunning. When you are standing inside the main hall of the Jefferson Building you can feel the history moving all around you. 3y
MEGR I love this idea! I would do the same! Thanks for sharing! 👍🏼 3y
llwheeler That would be an amazing experience! 3y

My local library has very recently started adding something really neato to our receipts - stats! 😄
So, since April 14 of this year, I have actually saved $390.98 (printed on the receipt below the one pictured.)
Let this post serve as evidence of my intention to become a library check out junkie! I wanna see just how much I can save!
Borrow All The Books! 🤓❤📚

Riveted_Reader_Melissa That's really awesome!! 3y
Librariana @Riveted_Reader_Melissa - Right!? Makes me wanna utilize the library even more than I already do! 3y
Hooked_on_books My library attaches this to your account. It's so cool! 3y

Librariana @Indexasaurus - I agree wholeheartedly! 😄😊 3y
Librariana I love it, too @britt_brooke and @celtichik ! 😄😊 Glad we agree 😉 3y
Librariana @mcipher - I know, right!? When I saw it, I had a moment at the circ desk and went "Oh wow! This is SO cool!" And then I remembered to tone down my nerdy excitement ? 3y
Librariana @ReadingSusan - Aawww! That IS sad! 😔 I'm sorry to hear they took that feature away. What a shame... 3y

A most beautiful #coffeetablebook of the most beautiful libraries in the world.
Be careful - it's so beautiful your eyes may hurt.

Librarianaut Library of Congress, FTW!!!! I spent a week there last summer (2015) doing their Summer Institute on Teaching with Primary Sources. It was amazing. 3y
