With the objective of promoting reading in Barranquilla; the “George Washington” Public Bilingual Library of the Centro Cultural Colombo Americano, holds the “Used Book Fair” during April of each year, at the “Lincoln” Gallery. Our visitors have the opportunity to choose from approximately five thousand books and two thousand magazines (Glamour, Rolling Stones, Architectural Digest, National Geographic, Vogue, Seventeen, MacLife, Time and Semana among others) of different subjects, in both English and Spanish at reasonable prices.
We have welcomed the attendance of teachers and students from different educational institutions of the city. In addition to this, we have received great book donations on behalf of publishing companies, bookstores, international organizations and educational institutions. The funds raised from the fair will be invested in new research material for the public in general and for library members. The Fair welcomes book donations in English and Spanish on any subject from institutions and library visitors. If you are willing to do so, please contact us at 3854444 ext. 130 to arrange its delivery to the Library.
