The libraries have specialist collections on a subject. Many are linked to the area: they deal with the tradition, interests and culture that have made a neighbourhood so unique. Some examine the history of the library they are located in, others look at the personality of the person the library is named after.
You will also find collections grouped together by interest, interest centres: groups of various materials with a common interest.
The libraries also organise activities to disseminate, promote and encourage reading, and debate on these specialist collections: meetings with authors and specialists, book presentations, exhibitions, workshops, book clubs, etc.
The Horta - Can Mariner Library specialises in the world of theatre, offering theatre resources and texts.
