Creation Library - Ubik

bibloteca de creación presentación

Ubik's main task is to promote culture and contemporary culture in particular. It also offers learning spaces for citizens, as well as reading, audio and viewing services, plus loan services.

Being a creation library, it also has resources available for promoting creation, such as video and audio editing tools, a small recording room, a stage, areas that are specially equipped for viewing films and listening to music, and spaces dedicated to research.

The creation library has also launched a series of projects and programmes related to different themes such as desktop publishing, videogames, experimental cinema, sound and technology etc., which are explored through seminars, meetings, workshops, and so on.

At Ubik there is a space for enjoying sitting, reclining, lying down or doing what you want, sitting on a sofa reading or looking at the views of the city, a place of introspection and silence. It is called the Living Room. Another way to enjoy yourself is to choose a magazine at the Kiosk, look at it and read it.
