Here is my city's main library, its also the county library for Lancahire:





Not as swanky as the other libraries shown but a very beautiful building and when originally built it was the 2nd biggest in the UK.

In Sydney, the main library is the State Library of NSW, but cannot borrow from it.

It contains several libraries within it including the reference library, mitchell library and dixon library

So many awesome libraries!

I think Bangkok needs a new state of the art library.. and more of them throughout the city, it's something I missed.
