Teddington Carnegie Library in England

Built in 1906 in Edwardian Baroque style, this public library was designed by famed British architect Henry Cheers. It's still in operation today and serves the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames. In 2009, the library reopened after a six-month renovation that added space and rooms while preserving its rich history. There's a garden in the rear and a big glazed dome inside the brick-and-stone structure, according to Historic England.
