Beautiful libraries

Curious Expeditions has blogged about some of the world's beautiful libraries; the post includes many gorgeous photos of many gorgeous libraries. The only modern building included in the list is the rare book library at Yale, which deserves mention, although the photo doesn't really capture the beautiful glow that suffuses the building's interior and doesn't include the case with the Gutenberg Bible. Do the librarians really turn one page a day?
Speaking of the world's libraries, an accident at the National Library of Scotland came perilously close to damaging their Gutenberg Bible.
