Libraries in Puerto Rico
[Bibliotecas en Puerto Rico]

Some library holdings are more valuable than others but who am I to say. That will be up to you to decide when you visit them.

Our suggestion is that while visiting a town, you also visit one of their libraries.  It might turn out to be a gold mine just waiting to be discovered by you.

Warning! Information could change without notice.
