Virtual Library In Spain


Recommended Posts

I wrote an article for my company’s blog today about a great free library service that the Andalucía Borough Council offer to all residents. It is a service offered in other parts of Spain too. Although the library website itself can be displayed in English, the actual books and magazines are in Spanish obviously.

 

If you live outside of Spain, maybe your country offers a similar service where you can borrow books and magazines online to read on your electronic devices.

 

Just thought I’d share it with you in case there are any Spanish book worms amongst us!

It was great to be inside a library again after so many years. I’d thoroughly recommend it.

Nice article! Libraries are magical wonderful places, aren't they?

 

I grew up spending most of the time in my local Child Library and I was eager to become 16 and access the Adult Library because I had already read practically all the books there... Some even several times. :lol:

 

Now I work in a library too, but of a special kind. :wink: We deal with old manuscripts, several-centuries-old books and most of all newspapers since the 18th century. I think you'd love to pay us a visit. :)

That sounds like just my kind of place. I would LOVE to visit!
