The 25 Most Modern Libraries in the World

I found this list of 25 on the Web, and surprisingly it misses, the most important world famous modern library, i.e, Library of Alexandria:
The 25 Most Modern Libraries in the World By Christina Laun @
Extract: "Libraries aren’t just musty places to store books with librarians shushing anyone who makes a peep. They’ve become much more than that and the modern library is often home to sleek architecture and the latest technology. These 25 libraries, in no particular order, demonstrate how libraries have become part of the cutting edge of information management, design and Web technology, and all of them can help you get some ideas on how to bring your library into the future."
My question: Are these ranked? Answer: no! Are these evaluated, nope!--
Reader: You will have to do it.
