Hola Frank,
soy una diseñadora francesa, hé pasado un mes trabajando en Barcelona en varias bibliotecas. Hoy, hé hecho una pagina web, como un "mini-blog" quien habla de los mejores sitios para trabajar que hé podido testar durante mi viaje. Antes de compartir esta pagina con mis amigos de facebook, necesito vuestra autorización porque hay una foto de vuestra web que quisiera utilizar, la de la biblioteca Sant Pau-Santa Creu. Si usted me pueden dar la autorización, estaré muy reconocida. Y por supuesto, dime cual crédito poner / cual nombre poner por los créditos.
Muy attentamente,

Caroline Saint-Lu
(gracias responder por email, que esta en mi web : carolinesaintlu.net)
