This link features 20 pictures some truly amazing libraries!  Of those featured, my favorite is the Library of the Benedictine Monastery of Admont in Austria.

Founded in the year 1074, this library–the largest monastery library in the world–contains among its treasured holdings some 1,400 manuscripts (some dating back as far as the 8th century), as well as 530  incunabula, which detail the history of the development of the Benedictine Order.
