An amazing sample of sketchbooks from artists, scientists and travellers. The whole place is a treasure of art, music and books. And for free!!!! If you want more about books also go to nearby ricardo corazón de papel! Wow!

If you walk up to the top of the library there is a pleasant garden and good view of Mount Monserrat. The library building itself is quite modern, we didn't spend any time inside, so can't comment of its book collection.

Although I didn't have a library card (!) this is a beautiful place, and conveniently located across the street from Museo Botero. Worth a quick walk through as the art installations are fantastic. I was fortunate enough to stumble upon an exhibit of Emory Douglas'...More
