We mentioned this post in yesterday’s News & Announcements but it deserves an additional shout-out. It’s from Tech Insider and provides readers a photographic tour of the “most beautiful libraries” in each of the 50 states. The folks at Tech Insider “looked at past and current award-winners as judged by the American Institute of Architects and the American Library Association awards, and relied on our own judgment for states who have never won.”
