The Coolest Libraries I Haven't Yet Visited

I am so crazy about libraries that I keep a Pinterest board of libraries I love and wish I could visit.

Some libraries I will never be able to visit, like this walking library of the 1930's...

...or the smallest public library in America, now, sadly, closed, which was built and maintained for seventy years by eight women in South Dakota....

But I can still visit this library in a tree in Berlin, I think.

I'd like to have a bicycle library some day.

I'd love to visit the Bibliotheca Alexandrina in Egypt, a tribute to one of the world's oldest libraries.


Could someone please build me this garden library?

 The first time I saw the Kansas City Library I didn't even think it was real.

Maybe one day I'll put together my own version of a Lego library.

One day I'll stay at the Library Hotel in New York City.

 Look at this beautiful picture book library in Japan.

Who wouldn't love visiting a library like this library in rural Italy?

 We could use a vending machine library in every Walmart, I think.

How about you? What libraries do you want to visit? Share some with me.

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Each Tuesday That Artsy Reader Girl assigns a topic and then post her top ten list that fits that topic. You’re more than welcome to join her and create your own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list as well. Feel free to put a unique spin on the topic to make it work for you! Please link back to That Artsy Reader Girl in your own post so that others know where to find more information.


  1. I'd love to visit all of these places! It's a shame that the smallest public library is closed forever now.
