The “Biblioteca” will be the central facility of the National Network

of Public Libraries, a system of almost 6,500 libraries throughout the

country. It will be located in Mexico City, and ultimately house more

than 2 million volumes of the world’s greatest reading material. At the same time, the library will employ the latest technology to connect citizens of Mexico, their public libraries, and their rich cultural heritage with the other great libraries of the world. This will be a facility everyone can share and enjoy, a place to encourage literacy, cultural interaction, and personal growth. Mexico has one of the world’s greatest arquitectural patrimonies, and the new “Biblioteca” must contribute to that heritage.
