LA Times – “What do Mexican libraries look like? Maureen Moore, who works for the Library Foundation of Los Angeles, had unique access when she recently traveled to Mexico. There she visited several, and brought her camera with her. Above, students study in the science department of the Central Library in Oaxaca City. In a post at the Library Foundation’s blog, she also includes a picture from Biblioteca Henestrosa, which focuses on Mexican history and Latin American literature and is part exhibition space, part library. Rather than being a public library, it’s funded by a single philanthropist.”
