Coolest Fictional Libraries

I have always loved libraries – right from being a small child. To me, they were magical places where you could go on a real adventure. So, what’s better than doing a list of great libraries I’ve visited? Doing a list of great fictional libraries of course – ones which appeared in books I’ve seen or films I’ve watched. I’d happily have any of these installed in my mansion, should I ever chance to win the lottery or similar. Well, I can dream can’t I?

These are in alphabetical order. Because I’m that much of a nerd.

The Benedictine Monastery library – the Name of the Rose – Umberto Eco

The Chester’s Theological Training College Library – the Box of Delights – by John Masefield (TV version)

The Citadel Library – Game of Thrones 

The Earl of Drumer’s Library – in House of Hell – Steve Jackson

The Gormenghast Castle library – Mervyn Peake

The Hogwarts School Library – JK Rowling

The Library – Dr Who (new series)

The Library of Babel – Jorge Borges

The Miskatonic University Library including the ‘Necronomicon’ – HP Lovecraft

Honorable Mentions

The Fortress of Solitude / The Batcave from the Superman / Batman comics (not really libraries but full of information and cool stuff so they deserve a mention)
