Popular Library in Rocinha Favela Reopened

After a 2016 decision to close a number of Rio libraries due to a funding crisis, the Biblioteca Parque da Rocinha (Rocinha Library Park), a Rio library in the largest favela community in Brazil, has reopened.  The library in Manguinhos, (North Zone) and the state library of Rio, or BPE (Biblioteca Parque Estadual do Rio), in Centro are expected to reopen by May:
