Other Info: The building is a magnificent one. It was the old National Library (BNP) building, built in the 1940s, with an addition near 1974. Still under the hands of the BNP, it is supossed to be Lima's Public Library. It has several open shelve sections: study; media; art & literature; children; braille; history and geography; reference; magazines; pure sciences; and social sciences. The Web page do not mention a "school students" section that I know exists instead of a juvenile or teen section. The reason is due to the small inefective or non existent libraries in many public schools. Library cards have a price: regular is US $ 2.98 for one year, renewable; US $ 0.98 for children between 6 to 11 years old; free for children between 3 and 5 years old. The building has no parking for library patrons; it is on one of the main thoroughfares of Lima downtown. The Web page says that the same on-line catalog in service at the main BNP new building can be used with PCs, in spite of cero information about computers and Internet for the general public.
