A public library, una biblioteca publica

Like stepping into the past!  


They even had self-help books!


Amazing place.....



Remember these?


Look at that....

This is part of the BCN public library system, a gift from a private donor.  Amazing.

I am not sure that any of the books can be taken out.

What a stunning Library! are you allowed to read the books in the library itself? or are they just for display? a library museum?

I think you have to read them on site.....not unreasonable.

That's amazing! That alone should be reason enough to go to the library in the first place :)

TOTALLY worth visiting the library, I'm hoping to go back some time and take some books out to leaf through. Lots in French too.

Beautiful! All that knowledge, waiting to be tapped.

I had the same response, you could spend a very long time in there reading, and they had the dictionaries to help you with it as most of the books were in Spanish or Catalan with a bunch of French tossed in and a few in English....
