Location Description:

Inside this big, leafy brick home (wedged in between two office buildings) lies more than 40,000 titles translated (or not) from Spanish, Catalan, Basque, and Galican. The (self-described) "largest organization in the world concerned with the teaching of Spanish," the library hosts exhibitions, lectures, and film festivals, often about modernist-related subjects. Intensive Spanish-language courses are offered seasonally.
