A visitor walks through a tunnel of books in the Labyrinth on the second floor of the Last Bookstore in downtown Los Angeles. The Labyrinth features a massive, chaotic, maze-like space housing more than 100,000 used books - each book is only 1 dollar! It features doors that lead nowhere, time-travel portholes looking into an artist's rendition of outer space, and "secret passage ways" leading into hidden book rooms.

View outside of my office :) Either Or bookstore Hermosa Beach California.
"Hermosa Beach was home of the quirky Either/Or bookstore, the radical counter-cultural center of the L.A. beach cities. It was nice to mill around and read books you couldn't afford to buy. After many decades on the same street, Either/Or finally closed in 1999. Some of us will always remember it as the best independent bookstore ever, along with a California beach lifestyle that seems almost unbelievable now." From "Feathers and Flowers: Hermosa Beach reminiscence," photos from the 1970s.
Hermosa Beach bookstore we all loved.

the Long Room in Trinity College Library, Dublin, Ireland
The Long Room, Dublin, Ireland The main chamber of the Dublin's Old Library is filled with 200,000 of the library's oldest books. The room is lined with marble busts of some of history's best philosophers and writers, so readers are always in good company.
Trinity College in Dublin. Ireland’s oldest university, Trinity College was founded in 1592. What you see here is the long room of the college’s library – as a legal deposit library, it’s entitled to a printed copy of every book published in Great Britain and Ireland. The library is one of Ireland’s biggest tourist attractions, in particular its Book of Kells, which contains the four Gospels of the New Testament.

LOST BEAUTY. Interior of the Public Library of Cincinnati & Hamilton County “Old Main” Building (1874). J.W. McLaughlin, Architect. Photographer unknown. PLCH began in 1802 as a subscription library. In 1853, it officially became the Cincinnati Public Library. In 1874, this building was constructed on Vine St between Sixth & Seventh St and was then considered the most magnificent public library building in the country. Site in use until 1955. I dream about places that look like this.
This is a part of my personal heaven - look at all those books!! A man taking a book off the shelf in Cincinnati main library in 1874. Photo by: Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County.
Cathedral of the book This unreal 19th-century image of Cincinnati Public Library stands out among the library images I tweeted and blogged about over the past year - readers of my project’s Wordpress blog may recognize it. The picture takes us into a large, dark room, with high ceilings. Light is sprinkled over high stacks of books, which look like matchboxes. Cast-iron pillars hold up the ceiling and give the place the appearance of a cathedral, where readers come to worship the ...

Is a library without books the future? A bookless library sounds like a paradox but in San Antonio, Texas, it's a thriving reality. America's first digital public library, BiblioTech, opened in Bexar County in the fall. There are no paperbacks or hardcovers here, but e-readers, tablets, rows of iMacs, touch screen tables, & even Xbox 360 Kinects. The library deals primarily in e-books but if you don't have your own device, you can borrow one of their 600 basic e-readers. Download up to 5 books..

The Biblioteca Marciana in Venice, Italy The first-floor entrance lobby to the Biblioteca Marciana (completed in 1564) in Venice is reached by a dramatic and richly decorated staircase from an outside doorway in the center of the grand facade facing the Doge's Palace. Since 1596 the vestibule has housed the Grimani Collection of sculpture. Beyond is the reading room, one of the finest rooms in Venice.

Parmly Billings Library Acquisitions Librarian Karen Stevens has written a book about Montana ghosts, in which she devotes an entire chapter to the library’s various haunts that she has investigated: the dark-haired woman in the basement; strange whistling and a male ghost wearing jeans and work boots on the second floor; a white shape that moves outside the windows on the fifth floor; and odd movements in the book stacks of the Montana Room.

This Denmark library is tucked inside the Metropol shopping mall, but the free-spirited interior design by Bosch & Fjord makes it a playful oasis away from consumer drones. The red “tape” that runs throughout the library acts as a fun decoration and occasional bookshelf. Bold colors and organic shapes (especially the furniture) “encourage playfulness, surprises, and most of all a place to be.”
