Biblioteca Publica

The Biblioteca Publica is one of the largest bilingual libraries in Mexico. It has over 60,000 books. English on one side and Spanish on the other. The Biblioteca has been in it's present location since 1958. There is a large central courtyard with a fountain. A gift shop, a daily walking tour, and a sunday home tour all contribute to support the library. This is a second more interior courtyard that houses a cafe and is currently Bernie's home office away from home office.

Just an aside, the many fountains in San Miguel are all incredibly clean. Today a city inspector came by to check out the two fountains in our guest house. Evidently even private fountains are regulated by the city.

A gorgeous rock stairway leads up to a balcony area with super views of the city. Also to several offices and a children's area for daily art and science and music classes.

Wall flowers.

The side support arches of the church next door.



And a chair against the sunset wall color.

  1. I always enjoy the composition in your photos,... the angles, the colors against each other, and even the curves in that wrought iron. Nice work Diana!
