Pretty Library?

<p>Just wondering if there are any other colleges that have such a beautiful library as Vassar's? It looks like its straight out of Hogwarts. I feel like that type of library would make me want to go and study haha</p>

<p>UCSD wins again. :)</p>

<p>boston college's bapst library was recently voted the best looking library</p>

<p>CampusGrotto</a> - Most Beautiful College Libraries</p>

<p>i doubt there's a better looking library than bapst</p>

<p>Here you go... <a href="http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/college-search-selection/940681-most-beautiful-college-libraries.html%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/college-search-selection/940681-most-beautiful-college-libraries.html&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>The walls of the library of Loyola Chicago are glass and they look out onto Lake Michigan. The library is ON Lake Michigan.</p>

<p>Check out University of Chicago, Harper Library. It is Hogwart-like.</p>

<p>Among more modern libraries------Middlebury! Beautiful bowed window looking out over the mountains.</p>

<p>Duke, Dartmouth, Holy Cross, Harvard, Amherst.</p>

<p>Scroll down to see more pictures!! Go Bucks!! lol</p>

<p>Duke has a couple of very nice, gothic-style libraries (Bostock and Perkins). UNC-Chapel Hill also has a picturesque old-southern style library (Davis) that is beautiful on the inside as well.</p>

<p>

Davis has an excellent collection, but calling it picturesque is a stretch of the imagination by any definition. The decor belongs in the 70s, and the architecture would fit in at NC State. Wilson is far superior, in my opinion.</p>

<p>No thread would be complete without mention of the new Barret library at Rhodes. It's absolutely gorgeous, inside and out.</p>

<p>You're right. I meant to mention Louis Round Wilson Library, not Davis.</p>
