Today’s addition to the A to Z April Challenge is a magnificent library located in Mexico City. The José Vasconcelos Library is huge. Within the library is a complete whale (Ballena) skeleton on display. And the building is surrounded by a botanical garden.
According to Wikipedia:
Mexico City’s Vasconcelos Library, labeled by the press as the “Megabiblioteca” (“megalibrary”), is dedicated to José Vasconcelos, the former philosopher, presidential candidate and president of the National Library of Mexico. The library is spread across 38,000 square metres (409,000 sq ft) and had an initial planned cost of 954 million pesos (roughly US$98 million).
It’s a megalibrary for sure.
