Casa de las conchas library

The State Public Library in Salamanca is located in the building ´Casa de las Conchas´ since November 1993, when it opened. Although previously other libraries existed in Salamanca they were thought as, as precarious, inadequate facilities.
The previous library occupied one floor of a residential building where it was difficult to distinguish it from other residential buildings.
Therefore, the new library was presented to the public as something radically different and for many people in Salamanca; it was their first contact with the world of public libraries because unlike other cities, there wasn´t one before.
