10 of the Most Beautiful College Libraries in the U.S.


What makes a library beautiful? The architectural design, the culture, the flow, and of course the ability to inspire. When I think of the perfect library my mind immediately goes to Hogwarts. Whose doesn’t? Stain glass windows, clunky old wooden bookshelves, dim chandeliers, high ceilings. It’s gorgeous.

You are sure to feel the thirst for knowledge while studying in one of these stunning libraries.
