Conarte’s Colorful Mountains of Books

Conarte library with mountains of shelves for books

When I saw the photos of this Mexican library, I was instantly enchanted!

In the heart of the city of Monterrey is Fundidora Park.  The park includes everything from gardens to museums and auditoriums to theme parks.

It also includes this spectacular library designed by the architects at Anagrama.  This children’s library, or cultural center, is part of the Conarte, or Council for the Culture and Arts of Nuevo León.

It was designed to be a playful space to help enhance the love of reading in children by mimicking the local mountainous landscape.

I can just see my own kids running over the mountains of shelves, rolling and climbing and laughing, and, finally, snuggling up in a valley corner to enjoy a book.

And myself.  I can see myself doing these things as well.  🙂
