Reading Rooms --- Day 6/110

Walk: Kabuki Theater (Wonder Woman)
Distance: 2 miles, small yoga

Architecturally, what is more beautiful than a beautiful library?  At least to book people?  A friend of Ciwt's sent these pictures along with the dates the libraries were established:

Bibliotheque Nationale de France, Salle Labrouste, Paris, 1868 


 Trinity College Library, Dublin 1732


Biblioteca Joanina, Coimbra University (Portugal), 1728

Here are more captured by Paris-based photographer Thibaud Poirer....
And here's Poirer's website
