Let’s talk about libraries. Libraries! “Oh, hello, are you a person? Great, you’ve met our qualifications. Please enjoy unlimited borrowing of any number of any books. Do we not have the book you seek? Let us know and we will buy it so that you can read it. You will owe us nothing. Stay as long as you want.” Libraries are like pleasant, real-life morphine dreams.
Libraries for life.

It is most notable, however, for containing the world’s most valuable book – Heinrich der Löwe’s Gospel Book. This was created between 1174 and 1189.
