This is a ‘new concept’ library which attracts a large number of visitors, thanks in part to its position beside the shopping centre. Its non-stop opening hours, its stock of recently published publications, its rapid turnover of books and the computerisation of its services make it one of the busiest libraries in Modena.

Books for children include various publications in foreign languages.
