    Katarina, it's beautiful, but if u only have one day and if that's the only thing you wanna see downtown, just dont go. You wont be able to do much stuff besides going into the main hall and taking a look at it, wich is nice but will be done in 10 minutes at the most. Only go there if you're into a long stroll through downtown Rio. In that case u can visit a lot of sights such as the National Library, Municipal Theatre, National Museum, Paço Imperial, São Bento Church, Candelária Church, Metropolitan Cathedral, Lapa, Tiradentes Palace, CCBB and the surroundings with lots of cultural centers, Rio Museum of Art (MAR), etc...

    You can easily see this place in the morning, take the metro to Botafogo and see sugar loaf in the aft, and then walk along Copacabana or take the bus to the Arpoador and watch the sunset over Ipanema, and then go with some friends / hostel mates for a walk through Lapa and the Lapa Steps at night.

    It's really really beautiful, but honestly? If you just have one day and it's your first time in Rio, there are better and most important places to go. If you wanna more help, just send me a message. :)

    Well, so, ignore all our tips, go there and see with your own eyes (seriously, don't stay just on desire! :D)

    That's exactly what I'm planning to do.. :p "I'll ask if the place is good, then everybody says that it's not worth seeing, but I'll see it anyway" :D

    Katariina, it's completely worthy! It's marvelous. As library it is good as well. They have a good books research system and the it's staff treat you nicely, different of the guards in National Library.
    It's worth for both the building and the library itself. Go for it!

    Thank you so much!! Now I'm 643554% sure that I'll visit it! I was afraid that the place would be just for seeing, but if it's possible to read something, even better :)!

    I am a researcher and I've been there several times. It's wonderful, but unfortunately our libraries are abandoned.

    I also strongly recommend National Library, at Cinelandia.

    Thanks a lot! I'll also keep the National Library in mind and visit for sure if I have time to!! :)
