BIBLIOTECA DEL SOL:
A HIGH MOUNTAIN LIBRARY PROJECT
BY LOUIS DE CORDIER – SPAIN
Biblioteca del Sol is an underground library
by artist Louis de Cordier
situated at an altitude of 2000 meters
at the heart of the Sierra Nevada, Andalusia, Spain.
“The mission of the library project is to secure
that the knowledge essential to humanity’s recovery
after a societal upheaval will be available when it is needed.
To this end, we propose that you select a book
as a legacy for the future.
Write even a personal note in it, wrap it
and label the package well.
Then send it to our office in Spain, where it will be handled
and distributed to the high mountain library.
Someday, we’ll all be glad you did.”
