El Ateneo Grand Splendid in Buenos Aires, a converted theatre that is considered the world's most beautiful bookstore. The former stage is a cafe, and the box seats are reading nooks.

@alice I would be there so often if my city had anything like this

@erinbee The main library in the city I grew up in got a new building. It is modern and nice. I love it. I wish every city could have a proper book temple, hehe.

@alice The main library in Vancouver recently got an art gallery and rooftop garden, which just goes together so well with books.
