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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have ideas or donations.
This is our library.
We want to fill it up with more cabinets packed with books.
