Public libraries in Barcelona

Public libraries in Barcelona have improved massively since I arrived 20 years ago, and the city now has a great network, though they could extend opening hours. Good WIFI, children’s sections, book clubs, etc.

Good article in the Metropolitan No fewer than 38 public neighbourhood libraries are dotted around Barcelona’s cityscape, with a wide range of services and activities including a surprising amount of material in English.

The British Council Barcelona: Centre for British cultural activities and full library facilities which you have to pay to join. Good selection of British literature and TEFL material.
