The Biblioteca Nacional de la República Argentina (Spanish, National Library
of the Argentine Republic) is the largest library in Argentina and one of the
most important in the Americas. It is located in the barrio of Recoleta in Buenos Aires.












The National Library, designed in 1961 by Clorindo Testa, Francisco Bullrich
and Alicia Cazzaniga.
Borges and his Sub-Director, the essayist and librarian
José Edmundo Clemente, called for the move to a new building.
In 1960 a national law set aside 30,000 m² for it, and in 1971 the construction
was started. The new building was inaugurated on 1992-04-10.
