@VVruba I didn’t go for “grand library” because I didn’t know how to arrange lots and lots of books automatically
In such a round hall, something round suggests itself. For example a globe. Many libraries have globes.
I think I will also share how I made books.
For the covers, I used a printable for mini-books covers to which I added an image of the side of the book.
The initial 18 copies differ in cover, I just moved UV map, the rest of the books are linked copies (Alt+D) with variable height and thickness.

Lighting still needs some work. There are not enough contrasts to see the figure of the robot well. And the fire in the fireplace is too bright, it attracts the eye in the first place, distracting from the rest of the room.
@NP5 Somehow it reminds me of my school library (although it was much smaller and cramped)
