When the castle was built contemporary architects recommended that libraries - as a tradition from antiquity - would be located to the east, where they could best exploit the morning light for reading. This store currently seven aristocratic family library.Carl Gustaf Wrangel had set up his collection of books in the castle in the middle of the 1660s.Upon his death in 1676 included collection of around 2400 books. They were organized by topic and size.

A little notes about the castle.
Skokloster has been nominated for Sweden's most beautiful castles in the magazine Queen. 10 Swedish castle has been nominated by a jury consisting of Frederick Bedoire - a professor of architectural history, Peder Lamm - antiques expert and Eva Littorin - Castle reporter.
Shimmering magnificent objects and trivial things, luxury and everyday life in the commander housing. Better than most places we know who has manufactured, used and admired the well-preserved interiors and objects. Skokloster is the largest private palace ever built in Sweden.
