The library at Lyme Park, Cheshire, England, circa 1900.
The Library at Anglesey Abbey, Cambridgeshire, England. The large room is made to look even larger by the use of large mirrors on either side of the window, giving the impression that the room and bookcases go on nearly forever.

The reading room at Leeds castle, in Kent, England.
The library in the 189-room, 800-year-old Dunrobin Castle in Northern Scotland. The sycamore-wood-paneled library was designed by Sir Robert Lorimer (1864-1929), a noted Scottish architect. There are over ten thousand books, many of them relating to Scots law and to nineteenth-century Highland development. This library has many of the quintessential library elements: rich wood bookcases and paneling, red walls and furnishings, a library ladder, a large globe oriental carpets, a large fireplace and ample desk and table space. Perhaps a perfect library room.
