Hola Smoke!

The Fraser Fine Art and Literature Library can supply books on loan or free to good homes, annual membership is a mere €1000 and we have an excellent selection of 'how to patronise the natives' books plus hollowed out books with fine malt whiskies for our more discerning clientele. You will be pleased to note we do not stock rough guides, so you cant hurt yourself on their rough-ness. (just found a 1992 rough guide to barcelona in my massive guide book library grr grr dont know why i didnt go there back then, kept going to paris instead and it was 2004 before i encountered the magnificent city of barcelona!!)

Chris, be careful or you might actually get some takers! ;-)

Smokin', this is a great question and I hope someone answers you soon. Where exactly would the beach library be? On the beach in Barceloneta?

A friend of my lovely wife Karen suggested we spend a spot of time on one of Barcelona's beaches. If we add this to our itinerary I remembered reading about this unique Barcelona institution. Since my family are all avid readers I thought this would be of interest while we are on the beach.
