A few books that talk about the great Alexandria library then, now and in the future:
Library: An Unquiet History by Matthew Battles
Much More Than a Building…Reclaiming the Legacy of the Bibliotheca Alexandrina, Ismail Serageldin
The Clock of the Long Now: Time and Responsibility by Stewart Brand
Levenger produced a replica of the time cam from this clock. Click here for more on its meaning.
