Rosario Castellanos Library

Central Library

The Library Program was founded in 1990 as an initiative of CASA A.C. workers. It is currently divided into 3 lines of action, Central Library, Community Library Network and the Mobile Library. In 2004, the Rosario Castellanos Public Library was inaugurated in the Santa Julia facilities. In 2007, the Community Library Network was created, which recovers spaces and turns them into libraries, providing access to literature and art in vulnerable communities. In 2018, the Mobile Library project was launched, bringing activities to promote reading to the communities.

We seek to encourage reading habits in children, youth and adults by providing recreational and cultural activities that allow the public to stimulate their imagination and develop new skills
