Since San Diego's main library is so pathetic, i'll just post Geisel Library at UCSD.

That Salt Lake City library is probably the most beautiful library I've ever seen. It's fresh and modern, but still very gracious - not at all minimalist. My favorite library in Canada is the Vancouver library, but hopefully the the new central library proposed for Halifax will give it a run for it's money.
