Novels with Giant Possibly Magical Libraries - Charlie Harrington

Topic: 
There are two things that, when I encounter them in a book, immediately cause me to fall in love. The word palimpsest A giant, possibly magic, library (extra points for a Forbidden Section or two) The two are not unrelated. A palimpsest is a book that has been one or more books before, with the older knowledge hidden just beneath the surface of the parchment, waiting to be unearthed. A giant library must, invariably, contain books with once-known, now-forgotten knowledge, just beyond that locked door over there. But I have the key... I hereby present a list of the very best novels featuring giant libraries filled with secrets.
