THE WORLD'S GREATEST LIBRARY {BLOGGER STYLE ESSENTIALS}

Sometimes I wonder where is the world's greatest library.I always think if my university library is better than this or look more ancient than this I would love to go with a doubt LOL, and I found out that Paris is the best city !!!
So here I seeking for you guys !!xx

Bibliothèque Nationale, Paris Of all the modern reading rooms, the one at the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris is perhaps the most surprising. The library is sunk in a podium and the reader descends through grand halls to reach the reading rooms below, which are arranged around a central garden containing full-size pine trees. Here sitting at your desk, you see a woodland outside, magically transported into the center of Paris.


Bibliothèque Sainte- Geneviève, Paris The exterior of the Bibliothèque Sainte-Geneviève in Paris (1850) was the inspiration for the Boston City Library but the interiors of the two buildings could hardly be more different. The Paris library pictured here consists of a single great reading room, constructed over book-stacks below. Its dominating feature was a delicately detailed iron roof reminiscent of the railway station interiors being constructed at the time all over Europe. The library, by architect Henri Labrouste, is an intriguing fusion of modern technology with classical design.
