Biblioteca Nacional de Honduras

The National Library Juan Ramón Molina (in Spanish Biblioteca Nacional Juan Ramón Molina) is the national library of Honduras, containing more than 40,000 volumes. It was the dream of its founder Doctor Antonio R. Vallejo and the dream of its promoters, Secretary Marco Aurelio Soto and Doctor Ramón Rosa, and established August 27, 1880, during the administration of Marco Aurelio Soto through an agreement on February 11, with a budget of one thousand pesos. It was renamed after the poet Juan Ramón Molina in 2009.[1]

The Biblioteca Nacional de Honduras is a public institution governed by the Secretary of Culture, Arts and Sports, and its mission is to compile, catalog, classify, conserve and spread all published documents in the country as well as foreign publications.
