Having a library in your home creates a personal place, a wonderful retreat from everyday problems. If you do not have a separate room for your home library design, then creative book storage ideas will enhance any room, from living room or home office to dining room and hallway interiors.

Creative, space saving and convenient book storage ideas beautify interior design and room decorating, adding wonderful details to your living room, dining room or kitchen, or creating cozy places in empty corners, decorating your home with book collections.
