    It is an interesting library, is located in an accessible location on the avenida 5, has two museums (natural sciences and abracadabra). You can request the keys of knowledge to receive event information and order books at a cost of $400, the Luis Angel Arango de Bogotá of the Banco de la República rich charge you much more (40,000, 70,000 0 100,000), a person of scarce resources will not invest 40,000 in check out books. The people who care are just friendly, I had a mishap by removing a few copies, the lady was furious for many copies claiming what had happened I make photocopies as permitted by copyright, I told him that was not true the law allows 40% of the text and the book not sold it in any country (national library; Lerner, Pan etc.) I think I was more furious at having to photocopy accustomed to very few leaves on the day.

    It is an excellent site to distract yourself not only with books but also with art exhibitions and a few games of chess, ideal space of the children's library for the most kids... quite entertaining.
