One Of The Most Majestic Libraries In The World Is Right Here In Iowa
Libraries have long been esteemed institutions housing our stories, ideas and intellectual progress. While the age of e-books has changed the reading landscape forever, there’s no denying the charm, fascination and draw of a real library. Just the sight of the shelves and the smell of old books provides a specific feeling that just can’t be described.
Iowa’s State Law Library was named by the Architecture and Design website as one of the 45 most majestic libraries in the world, and it is a perfect example of a library whose magnificent architecture really is awe-inspiring.
