  • I made a quick visit to meet and I thought it was pretty cool. There was an exhibition of old children's books very interesting.

  • Whenever I go there have external tables to study with sockets to charge computer or mobile. The environment with beggars is what causes the greatest discomfort, but in general they do not disturb the peace, it is only first impression. Within the collection is free to choose a book on the shelf, which is very good, because it does not necessarily need to ask the librarian to pick up the book. There is much silence and respect for the user. Free entrance also, with headgear. I like it a lot.

  • Nice architecture, free WiFi and lots of spots to read. Small expositions from time to time. Worth a visit!
  • Named after one of the Brazilian modernism biggest names is also one of the state main public library. It is second to none in Brazil. Unfortunately it is not 24/7 anymore, so check the hours. No parking nearby.
