As the Cedar Rapids Public Library celebrates its 120th anniversary of service in Cedar Rapids, it has recently been given another honor as well.

Business Insider looked across the country for the "Most Beautiful Library" in each state, and our very own downtown branch at 450 5th Ave. SE in Cedar Rapids took home that distinction for the entire state of Iowa!

The recognition, according to Business Insider, is based on

past and current award-winners as judged by the American Institute of Architects and the American Library Association awards, and relied on our own judgment for states who have never won

Congrats to the CRPL. Here are some of the other states' award winning libraries:

The Chicago Public Library in Illiinois

Minneapolis' Central Library in Minnesota

The Wisconsin Historical Society Library in Madison
