Barcelona’s Biblioteca Jaume Fuster – Pic of the Week

Share this post:

To celebrate National Library Week, I thought it would be great to highlight a library that I recently visited. I love seeing all of the libraries that people visit and share on In Custodia Legis. There has been such a wide range of institutions, including the New York Public Library, the New Mexico Supreme Court Library, the German National Library, the Trinity College Library in Dublin, the Buncombe Public Law Library in Asheville, and the University of Florida Law Library.

Before my recent trip to Barcelona, Spain, I read about the Biblioteca Jaume Fuster, which is architecturally renowned and houses one of the largest collections in the city with a special local history collection. I knew it would be a great stop on my visit. I was able to see it one evening during the trip.
