Explore Libraries around the World with Library Planet

Have you ever heard of library tourism? Library Planet explores libraries from around the world. Visit the site for amazing photos and stories--or to contribute photos of your own visit! This project is crowd-sourced and relies on content contribution from users.

You don't need to be a bookworm to appreciate Library Planet--the architecture alone is breathtaking. In addition to grand historic buildings, you can also peek inside smaller local libraries (This photo was taken at a library in Tanzania)

If you're interested in traveling beyond the world wide web, check out our general collection for up-to-date travel books for a variety of countries. We also have several Travel and Tourism databases. Need help locating a resource? You can always ask a librarian--we'd love to hear from you!
