Law Library’s Love of Libraries – Pic of the Week

In flipping through the Pic of the Week posts, I noticed that we have also had a lot of photos of libraries from around the world.  We do love libraries here at the Law Library of Congress!  We seem to be drawn to them whether we are at home, work, on vacation, or even on a honeymoon.

Here are all of our library shots in one place for your virtual viewing and touring pleasure. Each picture links back to the original post with more information about the specific library.  What’s your favorite library?

    How about something slightly modern like the libary in Alexandria, Egypt or the library of the Depy. of Philology at the Free University of Berlin:

    I think that it is the splendid library of all the countries of the world.
    What kind of collection of books is there in the library?
    I want to know this information, too.
