Vamos descobrir a Biblioteca Nacional de Portugal
Let's Discover the Portuguese National Library
I have illustrated the book Let's Discover the Portuguese National Library with text by Luísa Ducla Soares. This book was published by the Nacional Press (Imprensa Nacional – Casa da Moeda), with the support of the Nacional Library (Biblioteca Nacional de Portugal) and art direction of Pato Lógico.
The Portuguese Nacional Library has more than 200 years. Is has been in several locations under different names. The current building was open in 1969.
The entrance, the disinfestation, the cataloguing and classification, the restoration and conservation and the deposit in a tower are the various stages of the book path inside this bibliographic heritage.
The reader also has a path of his own in the reference room, the room of general reading, reserved readings room, cartography room, iconography room and music rooms. There are rooms and texts for all. At the end of the book, there is also exercises and activities for the readers to find what they know about the more significant Portuguese library.
