Callejeando el otro dia que estaba por la zona, entre a visitar esta biblioteca (de la cual había leido cosas).

I have step many times by the Passeig Sant Joan, and never I had noticed, a stately staircase, with a statue of liberty (apparently the 4 in the world). Charming and ancient books. I hope to return with my children.
Un lieu bien spécial très peu connu des touristes.

The history of its foundation and the way in which it has been preserved to our time is fascinating and very well told by the guide (in English, Spanish or catalan only). The statue of liberty in the lobby also has a special history. The library can be visited only on Tuesdays and on reservation at Barcelona Turisme. It hosts temporary exhibitions. This year, it was on Lawrence of Arabia.
Interesting visit to see a public library dating from early 1900 thanks to a philothrantic act by a local businessman who donated his house for community benefit. The librarian said I said I could take photos for my own private use only. I tried to explain it was for Google Maps but she said they don't have anything to do with them ! So here's my photos as she'll never find out !! Nice, peaceful place albeit small but it has bags of history & character.
Beautiful old library with one of the models of the Statue of Liberty in the entrance (same size as the one in Paris). Definitely worth a visit.
