2. A reading room with lake views. The homeowners turned to the original architect, Don Welch, when they sought to remodel and add on to their lakeside home. As part of the home transformation, they realized they could turn one of the original bedrooms into a library-office. Welch used cherry and maple wood for the bookcases and incorporated a ladder made by the homeowner into the space. While housing the extensive book collection took a lot of space, Welch also wanted to create places for the homeowners to read, relax and take in their views. Read more about this lakeside library

Turning the CornerThe cardiologist owner of this house on Lake Champlain, New York, is a passionate book collector — as is his wife — and he’s also a gifted woodworker. The two passions are united in the library, designed by architect Don Welch. Welch converted a fourth bedroom into a bookish retreat, crafted from cherry and maple wood. The shelving rises and follows the angle of the ceiling; an elegant wooden ladder, made by the owner, provides access.

Architect Don Welch approached this renovation with thoughtfulness toward his client’s love of woodworking, craftsmanship and books. Contractor Dan Clar was thoughtful as well, figuring out the best way to construct Welch’s design, crafting the wraparound shelves with attention to the fine details. The book sections are broken up by spaces for displaying artwork and the interesting design at the corner. See more of this library

Special care for rare books. If you have a passion for collecting rare first editions or antique volumes, it is important to take some precautions to protect your investment. To keep your most treasured books in good shape, be sure to:Keep books out of direct sunlight, as it can bleach the covers.Shelve books neatly, with bookshelves snug but not overcrowded.Lay very large and heavy books flat.When looking at a book, set it on a table, and don’t open the spine farther than it wants to go.Wash your hands before handling!
