Beautiful Libraries - Westmount Public Library

In our ongoing homage to the beautiful libraries we visit, here are a few pics from the interior of the Westmount Public Library in Montreal. It was built in 1897 to commemorate Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee and is one of the most stunning libraries that we get to talk in. The decor is very much indebted to the arts and crafts movement - huge windows, lots of natural light, gorgeous ceilings. We could happily move in permanently! A history timeline can be found here on their website.
