    One of the legendary ten most beautiful libraries in the world is said to have been built by Mr. Rilland's widow in memory of him, but she probably would not have expected that now there is an exhibition of "magic, Witch and devil". At this time, I think that the English "unrighteous" are so cute that they believe in magic as a philosophy. This is one of the most beautiful libraries in the world and one of the reasons why we like Mandarin University is that the efficiency of the afternoon papers written by tourists everywhere is twice as high as that of LC.

    The John Rilland Library is part of Mandarin University. It's a very magnificent Baroque building. It's very quiet here. Tourists will not make any noise. The library is the most popular renovation method in Europe. Its built-in and exterior walls are completely unchanged, but it extends to an all-glass reception hall, which is a perfect integration of modern and classical architecture. In addition, there is also a small museum, which has a collection of some heavyweight products, such as a large number of medieval manuscripts and printed books, including a Gutenberg Bible, which is the world's first printed version of the New Testament, absolutely the treasure of the town hall.

    When you walk down the street, you accidentally find a place that you think is a church. When you come in, you find that it's a very high-powered library. Yes, I checked it. It's called the John Rilland Library. It mainly collects some early printed books, which can't be borrowed. Nobody, a good place to learn, a little Harry Potter.

    A very old building, very solemn, with a long history of collecting books, is worth seeing.

    This must be praised. It is the third largest library in Britain and also the library of the University of Manchester. It is located in the city centre. When you visit it, you will see students studying by themselves. There are plenty of books in it. Perhaps a book that you can read at random might have been printed in the 18th and 19th centuries. Although it looks very old outside, it is very modern inside.

    The John Rylands Library has some of the rarest books in the world. The building is also beautiful so if you enjoy seeing old libraries then here is a must see. It is also really easy to visit as it is right in the centre of Manchester.

    The John & Raeland Library is brighter than many libraries in Greater Manchester because it has some of the most precious books published and some early eighteenth-century manuscripts that need to be booked in advance to see those precious documents. Free admission and a fairly good gift shop. The library is connected with a new and modern building.

    Founded in 1900 by Enriqueta Rylands in honour of her husband John, this library is astonishing in terms of architecture and volumes of historic books. A definite book lovers dream, do stop by the lovely cafe and shop before you leave.
