April is national School Library Month, and it's an observance that highlights our beloved sanctuaries of reading and studying at our equally beloved schools, including our favorite colleges and universities.

Get ready to hit the books, keep your voices down and check out the 27 most beautiful college libraries in America (divided by region) here.
