As you may know, DCPL is in the process of renovating several of its existing branches as well as constructing three new ones. A list of the new branches, as well as those being renovated, is available on our website, and the profiles include photos, blueprints, dimensions, and collection size. Looking at the beautiful new branches made me wonder how we compare to other libraries around the world, so I took a look online and discovered a couple blogs boasting photos of some really impressive, really gorgeous library buildings, which I’ve linked here and here.
In addition to online offerings, the DCPL catalog has a book entitled The Most Beautiful Libraries in the World, which is 247 pages of library goodness, profiling over 20 institutions across 12 countries. Check it out.
