Inside Chetham’s Library in Manchester, England. Chetham’s Hospital, which contains both the library and Chetham’s School of Music, was established in 1653 for the education of "the sons of honest, industrious, and painful parents" and as a library for scholarly usage. It is the oldest free public library in the United Kingdom.

   It is understandable that those books are on chains; since a person would certainly want to steal one. I am not saying I would. But honestly, LOOK AT THOSE BOOKS! Okay I most definitely probably MIGHT nick that one on the upper left. But I would feel very badly about it later. (wikimedia)
