The World's Oldest Library


Over 4,000 rare books and manuscrpits can be found at the world's oldest continually operating library. Al-Qarawiyyin library in Fez, Morocco opened in 1359 AD, inside the world's oldest university, which was built in 859 AD and bears the same name. The library has since been restored to its former glory, and the precious documents that were once under lock and key are now available to the public.
