See What a Big-Box Store Looks Like When It's Turned Into a Library. I LOVE the idea of a Big-Box library. You can never have enough books, but you can have too few bookshelves.

Former Walmart Transformed Into Modern Library Space - My Modern Metropolis
this is fantastic - McAllen, TX converted an abandoned Wal Mart into a gorgeous public library!
ABANDONED WALMART TRANSFORMED INTO A FUNCTIONING LIBRARY The International Interior Design Association recently selected the McAllen Public Library as the winner of their 2012 Library Interior Design Competition. The city inherited the former Wal-Mart after the retailer closed the store and abandoned it. The decision was made to euse the structure and create a new main library within. It's the size of about 2 1/2 football fields making the new library the largest single-story location in the US

now that's fitness motivation we can get behind. She does run to the library in the chamber of secrets and Harry discovers the piece of the library book she ripped out of her hand after she had been petrified.
Gotta get a book nerd to run? Tell her to run like you have to get to the library.
now that's fitness motivation. Hermione Granger
Hermione motivation. I don't know if I should pin this on my HP board or my fitness motivation haha but I LOVE it!

The Liyuan Library by Li Xiaodong Atelier This project is modest addition to the small village of Huairou on the outskirts of Beijing, just under a two hours drive from busy Beijing urban life. On the one hand it forms a modern programmatic complement to the village by adding a small library and reading space within a setting of quiet contemplation. On the other hand we wanted to use architecture to enhance the appreciation of the natural landscaping qualities. So instead of adding a new building inside the village center, we chose this particular site in the nearby mountains, a pleasant five minute walk from the village center. In doing so we could provide a setting of clear thoughts when one consciously takes the effort to head for the reading room. Because of the overwhelming beauty of the surrounding nature our intervention is modest in its outward expression. We can’t compete with nature’s splendor. The building blends into the landscape through the delicate choice of materials and the careful placement of the building volume. Especially the choice of material is crucial in blending with the regional characteristics. After analyzing the local material characteristics in the village we found large amounts of locally sourced wooden sticks piled around each house. The villagers gather these sticks all year round to fuel their cooking stoves. Thus we decided to use this ordinary material in an extraordinary way, cladding the building in familiar textures in a way that is strikingly sensitive. The inside of the building has a very expressive character though; its interior is spatially diverse by using steps and small level changes to create distinct places. It frames views towards the surrounding landscape and acts as an embracing shelter. The building is fully glazed to allow for a fully daylight space. The wooden sticks temper the bright light and spread it evenly throughout the space to provide for a perfect reading ambience. Design by Li Xiaodong Atelier
Ugh, add more books and become a magnificent home library??
'liyuan library' by chinese practice li xiaodong atelier is encompassed within a mountainous and forested landscape. a five minute stroll from the village's center, the fully glazed interior contains quiet and contemplative reading spaces and a series of platforms which integrate shelving for books. the locally sourced components were placed in rows with slight spacing leading to an evenly diffused light for a brightly illuminated reading atmosphere. a cubic grid of structural timber encloses the 175 square meter area, becoming a uniform framework for stairs, windows and stepped seating for impromptu chairs.
A Biblioteca Li Yuan, idealizada pelo Lixiaodong Atelier, se encontra na pequena aldeia de Huairou a duas horas de Pequim.
