Memorable Libraries Around the World: Handelingenkamer, NetherlandsJanuary 6 2023
The library of the Dutch Parliament contains every record of parliamentary hearings and discussions in the Netherlands.
Since it was built before electric lighting made the storage of paper a lot safer, the building was constructed with a massive leaded glass dome in the ceiling to allow in light and minimize the need for candles and gas lamps inside the library.

The State Law Library of Iowa also has some spectacular pictures like this: https://www.statelibraryofiowa.gov/index.php/about/locations/law-library
Thanks for the comment, Rachael! I'll be sure to make a post about that library in the future. :)
