For some, books are a passion – and this can mean a library in your home! Ever since I was a kid I loved to see the 2-story libraries in homes. Unfortunately for me, this was usually in a movie. But my dream was always to have a home with a library. I do have many books, but for those who can afford it, check out the wonderful libraries in these photos, and consider your own book collection  and how best to display them.

Below is a more modern style library, but also with bookshelves from floor to ceiling. Note the movable ladder on tracks!

 I like the library below, as well; it is small and cozy, yet old-worldly elegant!

So, if books are your passion, consider having your own library built-in! It can be in any style, the style as varied as the number of book lovers.
