'Library Planet' is a crowdsourced travel guide to libraries around the world [Tree Hugger]

 

Because who doesn't want to visit gorgeous libraries everywhere they go?

Back in June, I wrote about why you should become a library tourist. Visiting libraries wherever you go is a wonderful way to get to know a city. They're also a convenient place to take a break from walking and sightseeing, to let kids recoup and use the bathroom, and to chat with locals about their recommendations for things to do.

But not all libraries are created equal. They can be big, small, public, private, academic, national, kid-oriented, quiet, or lively. So how does one go about finding the best libraries to visit that suit one's interests and company?

A brand new blog hopes to solve this dilemma. Called Library Planet, and just launched at the beginning of December 2018, it describes itself as "a crowdsourced Lonely Planet for libraries." In other words, travellers can share descriptions and photos of the libraries they visit all around the world for other library lovers to read and add to their own travel itineraries.
