Beautiful Bay Area libraries you need to visit

From SFGate

“n case you thought libraries were nothing more than dingy buildings where books collect dust, then you haven’t seen enough of these beautiful Bay Area libraries.Aside from their clean and organized interiors, these local community and university libraries can boast about their architectural beauty with styles ranging from contemporary to Italian-Renaissance.Still, not enough people are packing up their bags to hit the library.A recent report by the Pew Research Center found library usage trending down. More than 2,700 Americans were surveyed between October and November 2015 for the study.The Pew Center also reported in 2015 that people felt if their local public library closed, it would have a big impact on them.” >
