  • It is one of the main cultural centres of Cali. Constantly there are exhibitions, conferences and events. It has a large film club program and is home to the museo interactivo short, the Natural History Museum, the Observatory Astronomical and the collection of books about history of the Valle del Cauca. Very good place to go to various cultural events.

  • It has an excellent collection of books, magazines, art exhibitions, educational area for children, film Club, variety of music concerts. It is a space where you will meet the most interesting flipside of the Cali and the city. In addition, in the stands you can see spectacular sunsets and feel the fresh wind of the mountain.

  • 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

  • Nothing better than investing in education for the population, this structure is impressive.

  • 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.
