  • It's not a tourist attraction, but it's not something you'll forget about. Its multiple elevated corridors and outdoor reading terraces invite you to pause in the middle of the city. Recommendation: Climb to the 7th floor and look at the CDMX skyline from an atypical perspective.

  • You can go to work, watch a movie, play in designated places and read books. It is a very beautiful construction and you can stop by the cultural area.

  • This library is awesome, when they first built it the people were upset as to why there was so much money spent on it. But once you visit, you know it is very different than others. The floors are made of glass, and everything else is made of steel. As you walk in you go thru metal detectors and they will not let you go upstairs with a backpack, but you can leave it without charge in the middle of the common area in the first floor. When I visited, there was a Chinese exhibition, they were still setting up the details but it looked cool. From every angle you can see the beauty of the structure and how it was well built. On the top floor there is a relaxing area so you can sit and read. There are also computers for you to use. And if you want some fresh air, you can either walk out from the top floor to a balcony and see the surrounding neighborhood. There are plenty of books to look around and if you need help the people are friendly and helpful. I really liked the overall experience. This is a place to visit, the neighborhood to the east of it is not the best but to the west side of it there is a mall where you can eat shop and it is the terminal for the bus as well as the train.
  • Esthetic but a bit noisy for a library, due to open structure. Bring headphones. Very safe bike parking underground. Lock your bike directly in front of the security guards' station, then check in and out with them.
