When was the last time you visited a library? Chances are, you don’t even remember. The sad truth is that going to the local library is not a popular pastime for most of us. Why would we bother when we can get almost any book in the world online?
But say what you will, there’s a charm in sitting inside a quiet library and enjoying your favorite book. Libraries, after all, don’t just hold books; their beautiful architecture is worth savoring too.
Travel photographer Richard Silver of New York shows us the beauty of libraries in these glorious photographs. Whether you are a book lover or not, these colorful, exquisite, and ornate libraries will make your heart skip a beat.
