  Widener Library, Harvard University.
by meteorologist1

Built in 1914, Harvard University's Widener Library is the world's largest academic library. The library contains 3.2 million volumes on more than 50 miles of bookshelves. You must have a Harvard ID to enter the library though. The library building is huge on the outside. And there are lots of steps leading to the entrance.

Directions: Located in the Harvard Yard.
