    Another good option: IBEU in Copacabana (near the intersection of NS Copacabana and Santa Clara) has two good libraries stocked with books in English- one for children, the other for adults. Anyone can get a library card and check out up to five books at a time. The adult library also has current magazines and periodicals.

    Instituto Brasil-Estados Unidos
    Av. N. Sra. de Copacabana, 690 – 5º andar
    Copacabana – RJ – Cep: 22050-001

    Mrs. DRL, I mentioned this post on my blog while I was writing about an online bookseller that delivers US books to Brazil cheap/donates profits to fund literary projects around the world:

    Tricia if you open the IBEU link with Google Chrome, the site can be translated into English. I don't speak Portuguese, and I was able to read the entire site in English thanks to this nifty Google feature!
