Community Libraries

The program was created in 2007 out of the need that existed in the surrounding communities of San Miguel and their scarce access to books, art and reading. Today the community library program consists of 10 libraries in different communities of San Miguel de Allende, San José Iturbide and Dolores Hidalgo with the objective of increasing the level of education and reading comprehension primarily in communities with limited access to these resources and vulnerable populations.

Installation, Committees and Services

Spaces in the schools are reconstituted in order to equip them with furniture, books and educational games available to the students.

We have a group of eight parents that make up the Library Committee which receives three trainings to be able to use their community library as well as support different activities such as: story time, workshops, cleaning, etc.

The group hosts activities to promote reading, book lending, credentialing and training for parents and teachers.
