  • Interesting library with historical expositions
  • Exhibition continues art, books, photography, cinema, astronomy, discussions, literary exhibitions, presentation of Valle del Cauca authors and books, workshops for children and adults, and many events of the departmental library. Mario Garces Borrero of the Universidad del Valle has as many titles as the library but it has excellent historical elements for basic education as well as video documents, books and nature photography. Has a wide parking and cafeteria, which not is good and of prices rather high for the character social and cultural of the library

  • Is it a library or the North Pole? Air conditioning is very strong. In addition, in some parts of the library you receive the air directly on you. It made me sick... I think that the air conditioners are made to avoid the heat, not that people die frozen.
