The main research library of the NYPL on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan (NYC)!

I think the Morgan Library is also considered a nice one.

The most famous one for Boston is the Copley library. Here are a few interior shots:

The Boston Athanaeum is also historic and neat:

The front steps of Harvard's library are pretty cool:

Most of the libraries in Brisbane are in New Buildings, and act a borrowing of fiction novels, kids books and magazines etc. Our local also has a community herb garden and hires out sports equipment to use accross the street at the park..

I don't know much about the Queensland library and what's it it, its not far away from us, the city council ones are all we need really.

Here is the state library of QLD

The university of Queensland Library is in a very unexciting looking building.

The best looking more classical "European" Style libraries are in Melbourne in my opinion.

The University of Texas at Austin library is located in several buildings on the campus, some fairly attractive, some downright ugly.
It ranks as the 10th largest In the US by volumes held (11,800,000+).
