The Casa África Media Library is a documental and multimedia centre specialising in African subjects, especially the Sub-Saharan region. The Media Library is also a centre of resources for investigation. Its mission is to facilitate the access to and dissemination of information and to collaborate on knowledge creating processes. Its bibliographic and audiovisual (CD, DVD and other digital formats) contents include documentation on Africa generated from the continent itself and from the West, encompassing the following disciplines, among others: cooperation and development, human rights, governance, legislation, gender, economy, environment and natural sciences, public health and medicine, history, geography, literature, art, cinema, music, philosophy and a large collection of dictionaries in African languages. This collection has been formed gradually and is now a reference for researchers and people interested in African cultures.

The entire collection may be consulted at Casa África or by means of the online catalogue.

Reading club

The Casa África Reading Club gathers all lovers of African literature or those who wish to discover it. The club is moderated by the journalist and writer Ángeles Jurado and holds regular sessions focusing on different titles. The Reading Club often counts on the authors themselves to explain firsthand their creative processes, as well as other experts on African creation and literature, such as Elvira Dyangani, Donato Ndongo or Antonio Lozano.

The Reading Club also has a parallel activities programme, with guided visits to exhibitions or attendance of cultural events related to Africa.
Registration: mediateca@casafrica.es

The Reading Club will open up to all people interested in African literature by means of the Reading Club Blog, in which the Three Cultures Foundation and other libraries also participate.
