The Library Project

In Nicaragua books are expensive and there are very few libraries.  La Escuelita received a donation of books and money for a large cabinet bookshelf. A church made a generous monthly donation to buy books and to start a Reader’s Program. 

The library is now stocked with storybooks and resource books that children of all ages can use. The teachers hold a Readers Program once a week for the children and with the beautiful storybooks they now read to the children every day.  The children are developing a love of reading and older children in the community use the library resources to do their homework. La Escuelita has joined a growing network of small projects in Nicaragua that are attempting to make books more available to students.

Please contact Penn Garvin ( if you have ideas or donations.

This is our library.  
We want to fill it up with more cabinets packed with books.
