Last month, we brought you a slideshow of the most amazing libraries in the world. The responses from readers were so full of suggestions that we couldn't resist running another batch of our favorites and yours. We're getting a lot of bad news about libraries recently, as funding drops and major cuts are made, but these buildings and collections remind us of how important libraries are, and how much they are worth saving!

George Peabody Library
The George Peabody Library in Baltimore, MD is currently part of Johns Hopkins University, though it has changed hands a number of times since its 1857 founding, from the Peabody Institute to the City of Baltimore to the University. The stack room of the library features five tiers of impressive cast-iron balconies.
