The mobile library arrives at CASA, AC, thanks to a donation from the Midday Rotary Club, which aims to establish spaces for social and cultural coexistence in addition to promoting child and youth development.
The mobile library travels to vulnerable communities that do not have library services and have unlimited access to information. It reaches these places carrying workshops, film screenings, reading promotions and book loans.
It currently travels to the communities of: Capaderillo, Rancho Banda, La Cuadrilla, Atotonilco and Rancho Viejo, benefiting 794 children.
