A NEW library has been welcomed for its potential positive impact on the community.
The president of the Diputación de Málaga and mayor of Rincon de la Victoria, Francisco Salado has praised the Antonio Garrido Library in Alhaurín de la Torre for its potential impact in the local community after the opening ceremony of the new project.
The new library has been constructed after a €1.8 million investment aimed at creating one of the most dynamic and important cultural spaces of the Guadalhorce Valley.
The new space will include room for almost 30,000 books as well as a fully interactive area with brand new computer equipment and a specific space for children.
In addition, users will be able to enjoy a reading room for members, a multipurpose space for organizing recreational activities and a terrace where events can also be held.
The site of the old library will now be turned into the Museum of Education in Andalucía which will further turn the area into a “cultural apple” and a point of reference for the municipality.
