  • good place to study
  • be there. open for everybody
  • Very good is open daily with a wide stretch of the schedule. The problem is that to enter, you have to leave your belongings in lockers, and when all are concerned they do not let you enter.

  • It was a great place, with the only flaw that not is I could take anything to eat or drink (understandable), today I returned from several months of not coming, there are more arrangements and light, but less tables to study in good condition, less plugs work well and today for some reason, almost for the entire library there is a loud noise as if they were moving a table from one side to another... VERY molesto(espero lo arreglen pronto)
