Wonders of the Library World in images



“At the moment that we persuade a child, any child, to cross that threshold, that magic threshold into a library, we change their lives forever, for the better”
― Quote by Barack Obama”

Libraries are magical places because they hold books of wonder. Like the soul to your mind.
Some libraries are so fascinating, they are a photographers paradise. An architectures dream. They can look like playgrounds and that is a good thing. A playground for the imagination. Books are magical and they open doorways, a little like some of these amazing entrances to some of these libraries we have on show for you here. A library is as imaginative and creative as the stories that fill them.
This is why they need preserving, and like a  rare extinct species they are now under threat. To take away libraries is to take away a big part of a childs life that is so much needed for their growth on every level. We should always preserve the library, as we would our childs future.  Want to get involved in saving libraries? Here’s some advice about what you can do to help protect the UK’s public libraries, along with some campaigning tips, and links to resources.

In the meantime fest your eyes on these amazing creations, that not only hold far away worlds and imaginary happenings, they also are the beginnings of creative genius minds. Your child's mind that would be.
