This facility is located at the National Library and is a Public Information and Activity Corner.  It will offer a select collection of resources on topics of interests to both countries as well as regular programs for diverse audiences.  Activities will include group discussions, electronic interactive programs and cultural presentations. The corner will be open Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays 13.30-16.30h, Tuesdays and Thursdays 09.00-12.00h & 13.30- 16.30h, and Saturdays 09.00-12.30h.
