Inspired by similar successful libraries in Medellin and Bogota, in Colombia, Manguinhos is a cultural and civic center much more inviting than stern, dark traditional libraries. Visitors can access publications in varied media in a modern and comfortable environment. The library also offers language and content research meetings as well as literature workshops.
