Instituto Cervantes Library (Tour Continued)
The government of Spain established the Instituto Cervantes with dozens of locations in key areas all over the world. The purpose of the Instituto Cervantes is to promote the Spanish language and the cultures of Spain and Latin America, especially in areas such as Brazil where there are Spanish speakers yet they are not in the majority population. The Instituto Cervantes in Chicago offers the Biblioteca Severo Ochoa with more than 20,000 volumes, Spanish films, music recordings, Spanish lessons and classes at reasonable costs, continuing education for Spanish teachers, and cultural programming.
