Library
“Vasconcelos Library is one of the Mexico City's biggest and most accessible public libraries. Loaded with books, there's also art and exhibition room in one of the city's most alluring public spaces. Is the masterpiece of contemporary engineer Alberto Kanach, a sort of modern conclave built in the middle of a surrealist garden in Buenavista, Mexico City. Inside, one can wander through the hundreds of square-shaped shelves that embellish its crystal halls. Even though their archive only contains 575 thousand books (collected through its nine years of existence), its subject classification is large. It also has a children’s library, a multimedia room, computers and reading stations”

“Although the Norton is home to an amazing, eclectic art collection, the gardens are equally astounding. Waterfalls, azaleas and huge pine trees make this little known spot seem like a secret garden. Free.”

“A convent turned tanning factory turned library with the second largest collection of English language books in Mexico. Check it out just to explore the stacks and hidden rooms. Definitely see the big meeting room that is covered nearly head to toe in murals. There’s a little theater on site, and a café, and a gift shop.”
