Community Library

Community Libraries

The program was created in 2007 and arises from the need that existed in the surroundings of San Miguel and its limited access to books, art and reading. Today the community library program is made up of 10 libraries in different communities of San Miguel de Allende, San José Iturbide and Dolores Hidalgo with the aim of increasing the educational level and reading comprehension primarily in communities with difficult access and with population in vulnerable conditions.

Installation, Committees and Services

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

We have a group of 8 fathers or mothers who make up the Library Committee, which receives 3 trainings, to be able to use their community library as well as support different activities such as: story time, workshops, cleaning, etc. .

Reading promotion activities, loan of books, credential, training for parents and teachers.
