 Bookstores/Libraries I’ve Always Wanted to Visit

I love bookstores, not just solely for the books, but for the design and history behind them, same for libraries...although libraries are harder to visit for me. I work in the library world, so even if it is gorgeous, I get thrown off track by books out of place...oops. I will shelve it where it needs to go and sometimes the hunt is on. 

 The Carnegie Public Library
I have heard about the Carnegie libraries and would love to visit one. 

 Trinity College Library
I'm part Irish and have always wanted to visit Ireland, but to see the Trinity College Library would a cherry on the top of the visit.

 The Old Corner Bookstore in Boston
Ok, this is one that is weird. I've been to the building, it's now a Chipotle, blah! I would have loved to have seen it as a bookstore.
 Boston Public Library
This is one of my few regrets from this summer. I never got to see this beautiful library. 

Shakespeare and Company in England
If I ever make it across the pond, I know there would be many places I would love to explore and see that are book related. This one is a stop I would hope I could make.

There are so many places, but I wanted to keep this week short and sweet and highlight my top 5. There are just so many places that stand out. 

What places would you like to visit?


  1. Visiting any bookstore overseas (whether its famous or a quaint little shop) seems like a dream. There's no plans in my near future to do this, but you never know... maybe someday!! :)

    1. Rissi, So true! Just to go see something over there would be amazing. Defiantly a fun dream to have. :-) You never know what the future holds.

  2. We've actually got a Carnegie library in my city!

    1. Jane, That is really cool! After I heard about them on a special, I thought it was the neatest thing.Have you been?

  3. I love how each of those looks, especially the last one!
