The CASA library endeavors to promote both a community and society of readers.Our goal is toassist in the development of reading habits for children, teenagers and adults. Through various educational activities, we are dedicated to stimulating imagination and nurturing new reading abilities. Our various services include the home delivery of borrowed books,the rental of computers, copy and print services, and school workshops. We organize workshops to promote reading such as the Read Out Loud Circle, and Arts/Crafts events.We also host several theme-based workshops throughout the year. Activities such as Piñata construction, Catrina making, and creating a Mandala are very popular events and bring the community into the library.
