      I've just uploaded a photo of British Library - not very original I'm afraid - but I wished I'd had the nerve to photograph the books as I sat in the cafe drinking my coffee (which was very good, by the way) - those dark wooden cabinets and old books looming up to the high ceiling. Was therefore glad to see your photo on Google!

      Yes, I really _love_ this feature of the British Library, and as you say, it's great that you can sit and look at it from the cafe.
