The branch will receive about 1,300 books, including works by renowned authors such as Edgar Allan Poe and Jules Verne.
The books were purchased through the program for expansion and actualization of public library collections through FBN. The Culture Foundation of Rio das Ostras registered the municipal branch, which met all the requirements and was awarded R$13,500 to be used exclusively for the purchase of books valued at R$10.00 for each copy. These copies have been ordered and should arrive this month.
"We chose books with varying themes, with the intention of meeting varying interests. For this reason we selected books about Africa and the history of Brazil, for example." said the librarian Rizia Gildate.
The library address is:
Avenida Amazonas, s/nº Centro.
The telephone number is 2760-3119.
Hours: Monday through Friday, 9am to 6pm; Saturdays from 9am to 1pm.
