The infographic was created some time ago, but it’s always good to find out that the Library of Congress holds almost 33 million volumes, and the last one in the Top 100, the library of MIT – “only” 3 million.
According to ALA Library Fact Sheet 22, the Library of Congress offers 34,528,818 volumes.
Just in case you’ll get impressed with 2.5 million ebooks from Kindle Store.
