Libraries in Lima

Silvana Aquino writes [es] on Infotecarios about the launching of Lima Literary Map. She explains the initiative:

Some weeks ago, the Downtown Lima Literary Map [es] was presented. This is a project developed by researchers Kristel Best and Renzo Farje and sponsored by the Peruvian House of Literature, that tracks literary and cultural traces in Downtown Lima, encompassing symbolic places (absent and current) from the 1930s up to date.

Silvana, as good librarian, was interested by the presence of libraries in the map, detected 11 of them and adds:

All these libraries, besides their strategic location, their architecture, their valuable colections, their services and cultural activities offer offer us the chance of go deep into the literary and cultural world -past and present- of the city. So next time you go Historic Downtown, don't miss the chance of some #biblioturismo [book tourism].
