All about it is pretty awesome, the park on the outside (I hope it's still nice, I haven't been there for a while), the building itself it's great and the collection also!

Not just amazing view from outside, but also quite non-noise-at-all place for reading.
interesting hemeroteca at the basement.

I happened upon a free tour from one of the volunteers there, at around 3:00. Our guide was a retired professor that spoke english, and was an unexpected wealth of knowledge. It was a functional & historical perspective beyond what I expected. Make sure to ask the volunteer at the end of the tour to donate to their organization.

When I went it was really weird, they asked for our passports or some other form of ID (not to check anything out, just to enter), then when you get up there, there aren't really any books to browse like in an American public library- just desks and card catalogs. The view was nice, but overall, weird.

It's a library! If you're a book-lover, you've got to go. The grounds are lovely. More than just books, this is history.
