If you are a lover of literature you can not miss the imposing National Library of the Argentine Republic and its annex the Museum of Book and Language. Two sites dedicated to saving and exhibiting the literary jewels of the Spanish language!
With a marked brutalist architecture, the National Library building is something that impresses and captivates at first sight. Its bare reinforced concrete structure that is supported by four huge columns with a gazebo as reading rooms. Inside the building has three underground deposits: two of them destined for books, which allow to deposit three million books, and one destined to keep magazines and newspapers, with a capacity of five hundred thousand copies.
Inaugurated in 2011 as an annex to the National Library, this museum located in the same grounds of the library, on Las Heras Avenue, is dedicated to the history of books and the Spanish language. A very colorful and dynamic museum that really goes out of the conventional. While the ground floor has a permanent exhibition dedicated to the book and the history of publishers in Argentina, the upper floor is intended for different temporary exhibitions.
