The 20 most spellbinding university libraries in the world
From Harry Potter to high-tech glass domes, these universities have some serious libraries to their names

You can't have a university without a library. The hub of any academic's life, some of these libraries have been feeding the minds of scholars for nearly 500 years.

From Duke Humfrey's Library at Oxford, built in the 16th century, to the Joe & Rika Mansueto library built only a couple of years ago, to the Stirling Memorial library built in the 1930s, each has its own unique look and feel.

How we expect our libraries to appear and function has changed. Irrespective of age, the following buildings each demonstrate unusual and beautiful approaches to the focal point of any university.

As you prepare to head off to university for the first time - or perhaps if you're already studying in one of these institutions - all these libraries stand testament to the brilliance of books.

George Peabody Library at Johns Hopkins University — Baltimore, America.

Opened in 1878, the library collection contains over 300,000 volumes largely from the 18th and 19th centuries. Transferred between various institutions, the library is now with Johns Hopkins University. The most well-known room is the Peabody Stack Room, which contains five floors overlooking the ground, decorated by ornamental cast-iron balconies. The skylight is 61 feet from the floor.

Another photo of the interior of the Philological Library

It is part of the largest university in Berlin, the Free University, and has four floors which link six of the university’s courtyards. Soon after its completion the distinctive style and shape of the building earned it the nickname, ‘the Berlin brain.’

Library at Pontifical Lateran University — Rome, Italy

Started in 2004 and completed in 2006, the library works against the assumption of traditional classicist architecture associated with Rome. The library functions almost on interlocking layers, as gentle ramps act as links from one floor to the next – and as the bookshelves. The central – fire proof – tower houses 70,000 volumes and rare manuscripts. The library is part of the Pontifical Lateran University, an institution that boasts four saints among its alumni and is known as ‘The Pope’s University’.

Joe & Rika Mansueto Library at the University of Chicago — Chicago, America

Donated to the university by two former students, Joe and Rika Mansueto, the state of the art library has the capacity to house up to 3.5 million volumes – all underground. The library’s temperature is carefully monitored, ensuring students learning under the huge glass dome can work in peace.

The Philippines would have libraries better than the ones featured above if our billions of pork barrel funds were not stolen by Napoles and her senator cohorts.
Romans 10:9-10
"If you declare with your mouth, Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved."
