This volume separates the display and reading sites and it is structured of a silk-screened glass with texts containing the names of the main Chilean writers, which are illuminated with cold white light, emitted by LED hiding on top perimeter.

The classical architecture of the room has a warm white lighting, which highlights the most important elements of its architecture, such as arches and pillars and dome.
