  • Imposing building. We perform the guided tour on Saturday and it was rewarding as they maintain the library security and lighting of the rooms. I hope to go to visits to institutions and see some of their deposits. Very friendly staff.

  • Already from a distance, its unique architecture, compelling and futuristic is appreciated! It is not possible to visit it in its entirety. It can be only 3 floors. Incomparable view from the 6th floor!

  • Exelent!!
  • Beautiful building; Hours extended surrounded by gardens (call them squares.) Cultural activities on weekends. The most comprehensive national authors. Besides providing books for 16 days presenting ID and payslip to its name. In the same area is the Museum of the book and the language. I went on the night of the museums and witnessed a very interesting talk

  • Very nice to visit. But to study is very small, few tables and does not have a non-silent reading room
