Please allow me to share these beautiful interior of New York Public Library - Bryant Park.

I've been wanting to take pictures in the reading room again but unfortunately they are closed for renovation until next year. :(

Which beautiful library have you been to?

I dont remember much to be honest. haha. But Rose reading room is the best (first picture). However, it's currently under renovation. Take a look anyway. :) If you need spot recommendation, let me know. :)

I didn't spend much time in the other rooms that are there, but the stairways and corridors have some very nice views, particularly when the light comes in through the windows just right. Tough to get a photo without a crowd of people standing in the shot, though I guess that goes for most of New York City.

I already posted this in the Submit Your Best Pics with Mobile Camera (Mobile Cam Only) thread for obvious reasons - so not the highest quality. But I still think they fit perfectly here as a nice contrast to the OP.
It's the public library in Stuttgart finished in 2011 and built by the Korean architect Eun Young Yi.
(To the OP: I hope this is what you intended with your question "Which beautiful library have you been to?")

I guess all my recent real estate work is making me where all I see are distorted verticals. #1 is a cool shot, I think its worth correcting the verticals and letting it crop where it lands. In this instance, the really wide stretches people and the desks and detracts for me. Nice shots though.

What a cool place and great shots, is this library the setting for the opening scene in the Netflix show "Travelers"? Looks a lot like it.

I would implore you to lay off the HDR/clarity though, that first shot is way over done. Assuming you shot brackets, you could stand to brush in some brighter layers, especially in the bottom one. Are these panoramas?
