'Book Mountain' lets Netherlands readers explore pyramid of paper

Help

A new public library in the Netherlands called Book Mountain has been winning plaudits from architects for its striking design.

A mountain of 50,000 books covered by a glass shell, the building just outside Rotterdam is shaped like a pyramid.

Anna Holligan went along to visit what its architects think could be the world's biggest bookcase.
