Donde Esta La Biblioteca is a YouTube fad revolving around a Spanish rap from the NBC sitcom series Community. The phrase “donde esta la biblioteca” is a basic Spanish phrase that translates to “where is the library?” in English. It is often one of the first phrases taught in beginner’s Spanish class.
