What should a location possess that motivates you to read? Only books? The sea perhaps? The slopes of a mountain? Yellow Butterflies? The afternoon sunlight on the page, so when you close it the sun stays within its pages to sleep for the night?
The Gabriel Garcia Marquez Library has books, water, mountains of the Mitad del Mundo (city near to Ecuadorian capital, Quito) latitude zero and the sun. It opens its pages, its doors, to you.
It has been designed to brighten, accompany and guide the way to reading. That is why it has colors and allows for direct access to books and other available resources.
Novels, Stories, Poems, Essays, Graphic novels (Comics), Magazines, Internet, Digital Libraries, Museums and areas designed to play and discover the universe are part of what we put in your hands.
We hope that in this house of words the sun will lie down to sleep only when you close your book in one of our small reading rooms, only to return the next day for more.
