Even in this digital age, there really are some libraries in the world that are worth a visit. Those included in this collection all have unique features: for example, being the greenest building in Amsterdam, housing the first editions of Homer and Plato, or chaining their books to the shelves. My inner child would be going crazy in Iwaki, where there is a children’s library that, as an order from the architect, must display all its books by their front covers.
