I recently discovered Curious Expedition's compendium of beautiful libraries and Oddee's 20 of the world's most beautiful libraries — now that's some fantastic reading. I've sifted through their lists and come up with my favorite 15. I didn't include private libraries—I'll do a separate post dedicated to those in the future.

[Abbey Library of St. Gallen, Switzerland]

[Austrian National Library, Vienna]

[Admont Monastery library, Austria]

[Reading room at the British Museum, London]

[Klementium Library, Prague]

[Bad Schussienreid Library, Germany]

[Melk Monastery library, Melk, Austria]

[George Peabody Library, Baltimore, Maryland]

[Real Gabinete Portugues de Leitura, Rio de Janiero]

[Biblioteca Nazionale Marciana, Venice]

[Library at Strahov Monastery, Prague]
