Riggs Library, Georgetown University, Washington, D.C.

Libraries are not just spaces to grab a book, read, and study.

They can also be architectural masterpieces that tell a story about the time and place they were built.

Over the last two decades, photographer Thomas Schiff has captured panoramic photos of over 100 beautiful libraries across the US.

They’re displayed in his new book published by the Aperture Foundation, aptly named “The Library Book.”

Check out some of his library photos, which span from Baltimore to Des Moines, below.

“The Library Book,” by photographer Thomas Schiff, is a new book that features panoramas of over 100 American libraries.

The Boston Athenæum, one of the oldest independent libraries in the US, is pictured below.

To take the photos, Schiff often visited the libraries about an hour before they opened, he tells Business Insider.
