The Aesthetics of Libraries

There is a lot of talk of the threat that digital services like Amazon bring to the library industry in general (as this site's sub-title so slyly indicates). But one thing Amazon and online libraries in general cannot do is replicate the feel and aesthetics of a library (especially some of the big ones ).

I’m curious if there has been any push or attempt to market these aspects of libraries say in the tourist industry, in the same way that hard core baseball fans will visit all the great ballparks and general tourists love to visit cathedrals for the architecture.
