    Would you direct me to a history of this library?
    How did it come into existence and who was Dr Roberto Incer Barquero?
    Is this the main library in Nicaragua?

The Dr. Roberto Incer Barquero Library is located at km 7 of the southern highway (known as '7 sur') in Managua. The building is located next to the Central Bank of Nicaragua and it is designated to promote Nicaraguan culture.

The library has 67,000 books, free internet, a newspaper archive where you can borrow newspapers and magazines, and all the economical information of the Central Bank. Furthermore, the library offers a gallery in the same building, where famous Nicaraguan paintings as well as pieces from new, promising artists are continuously exhibited.

In the numismatic hall there is a permantent exhibition of Nicaraguan coins, bills, and memorial medals from throughout Nicaragua's history. There is also an auditorium available for events of all types with audio facilities and a capacity of 160 people.

Getting There

The location of the library, which is in the urban center of Managua and inside the Central Bank of Nicaragua, makes it very easy to get to. You can take the buses that go to "7 Sur" (Universidad Centroamericana - UCA- might be a good place to catch them). Also, the library is situated 2 blocks East from the 7 Sur traffic lights.
