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!

State Library of Victoria
The State Library of Victoria in Melbourne, Australia is the oldest public library in Australia, founded in 1854 when Melbourne was only 20 years old. The library is known for its great domed reading room, created in 1913.
