Library Parks (Parques Biblioteca)

Library Parks are a series public libraries that offer educational tools and programs to benefit the local communities, as well as providing a hub for further urban development and green projects. The term “Library Park” refers to a complex formed by a combination of architecture and green space for public use.

Strategically located in some of the most disadvantaged communities in the periphery of Medellín, they have become integral centers for social development that address an identified need for more cultural and education space.

The Original 5
The 5 original libraries were built by 2008, but due to their success five more came into use by 2011, benefiting around 784,000 people from all corners of the city.
