This is part two of our ranking of the most beautiful college libraries. When we originally did the ranking back in June, we were going to rank the top 50 ‘most beautiful’ but only published the top 25. We didn't think readers would be interested in looking at 50+ pictures of libraries. Apparently that’s not the case as the article has been one of our most popular articles over the last year and has left readers wanting more.

Due to the interest in college library beauty and architecture we now present part two of the most beautiful college libraries. For many of these libraries, the pictures do not do them justice. We tried to capture the beauty of each of these libraries by selecting a few photos that best show their interior and exterior design. However, one must visit these libraries in person to get the true feeling of inspiration that these buildings provide.
