Google, the world’s leading search engine commemorated Chile’s Biblioteca Nacional on August 19.
SANTIAGO — Google often changes its official logo lettering, also called doodle, for an interactive animation drawing alluding to the characters, events and dates it commemorates.
Today, August 19, the Google users in Chile are looking at the drawing of Chile’s National Library. A building, that was built in 1813 and where the Library was inaugurated on 1925. To allow its inauguration, the government of José Miguel Carrera, the administration in which the National Library was born, called on residents to deliver books.
With its 200 years of existence the National Library of Chile belongs among the oldest ones in all of Latin America.
It constitutes the main center for the collection and preservation of Chile’s bibliographic heritage and has conserved some essential acts for the country’s intellectual and cultural development.
