If you love libraries you need to read this book. It contains some of the most gorgeous libraries in the US and Canada. The LA Public Library is just HUGE! My favorite exterior shot was of the Poland Branch Library in Poland, Ohio. My favorite interior photo is of the Darby Community Public Library in Darby, Montana. It looks like a ski lodge.

More skimmed than read word for word. More of a coffee table book, or something you'd use as a reference. Not bad, some great photographs as well as some interesting places and histories.
