  • 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.

  • 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.
