al-Qarawiyyin the World’s Oldest Library Restored|Tor.com

‎Canadian-Moroccan architect Aziza Chaouni headed the restoration of al-Qarawiyyin, the oldest library in the world. Built by Fatima El-Fihriya in 849 in Fez, Morocco, it is part of the world's oldest degree granting institution.

In addition to the complete facility restoration, the ancient manuscripts and books were included in this project. 

This is so beautiful. What a gift.

This exceptional treasure is now open to the public. Here is a link to a log from a traveler to Fez.
