After the strict quarantine period, in July 2020 the BNP began the progressive reopening of its face-to-face services. With a reduced capacity, the first room enabled was the Hemeroteca of the San Borja headquarters. In this room, users can consult the largest collection of Peruvian periodicals existing nationwide, made up of newspapers and magazines published from the 18th century to the present. In the photograph, we can see a user consulting old newspapers, keeping his preventive tools against COVID-19, as well as using gloves to care for library material.
