Most of the contents are in Catalan and Spanish nevertheless there are also some shelves of books in French, German and English. The space is ample and comfortable, well heated in winter. Upstairs there are tables and chairs for working and armchairs for reading. On the first floor there is a small lounge for reading newspapers and magazines and a patio. At certain times of the afternoon there can be swarms of high school students noisily invading the space to do their homework – so don’t forget your earplugs.
