At Centro Cultural, we host the most complete system of bilingual libraries in Costa Rica.
The Mark Twain Libraries, located in our San Pedro, La Sabana, Cartago, Heredia and Alajuela centers, house more than 18,000 books and documents.
We offer a wide variety of resources for research and English learning and teaching: books, audio books, current international magazines, videos, DVDs, multimedia encyclopedias, the most important newspapers from the United States and Costa Rica, as well as other resources.
Active students at Centro Cultural receive free membership in the Mark Twain Library system. Non-student members of the general public may join the library with a very affordable fee.
All of our library users may check out materials for home use.
