“I have always imagined that paradise will be a kind of library.”
Jorge Luis Borges
Since its conception, the library has been considered the heart of Colegio Internacional Terranova, as it is the center where teachers and students are supported with bibliographic resources necessary for their inquiry processes and where, through various strategies, the pleasure of reading and love of literature is promoted.
Terranova libraries are attractive and comfortable spaces located in strategic places with easy access. Currently the library collection contains approximately 25,000 holdings in diverse languages, both in literature and for consultation, which widely covers the investigation and reading needs of our educational community.
