    Default Are there public libraries in DR?

    I realize there's the Biblioteca Nacional + schools & colleges have libraries, but do public libraries exist in DR? I'm especially interested in the Puerto Plata area, but wonder about the status of libraries in the country.

    Puerto Plata Public Library is on the corner of Beller & a small side street, not far from Parque Central. Enter from the small side street & go upstairs.

    If you are interested in English books, though there are some Greman and French as well I might suggest you go to Costambar (North Cost). For each book you take you need to leave one and there is no charge. After you enter through the gate, look for the yellow sign on your left they reads Maintenance Office, its next to the drug store and accross from Reys Market. Enter under that sign and you will see the books on shelves. You can also go to Bill's Books in Cabarate, they charge 70 peos's per book, but there might be a better selection. Last place would be Playa Delrado, $10.00 USD per book, and theyare not current.

    Just realised from your other thread LoiS-sez that your real interest is online category searches so me telling you where to find the Puerto Plata public library wasn't wondrously helpful........
