Visiting with your family

Are you visiting with children? The library does not have a Children’s section and its documents are mainly intended for adults, but did you know that the library provides various documents and activities in the different spaces that children would enjoy?
And if you are grandparents, take advantage of priority access without queuing, with your grandchildren, through the Bpi exit (for those over 60). Children remain under the responsibility of the adults that accompany them.

Do you want to play? Three games consoles, with three games linked to a theme, are available in the Video Games room. The programmed games, which go from the most popular to others that are not so well known, is regularly refreshed so that new games can be discovered throughout the year. The PEGI (Pan European Game Information) classification for each game is given so that you can see which are suitable for your children’s age range.
