The newest addition to the Library Project is the Little Free Library that sits on the steps of the Casa Colibrí clinic. This mini-library keeps the children entertained and engaged while their parents wait to be seen. Books can be read at the clinic or even taken home and later exchanged. This is one step closer to encouraging an interest and a love for reading.
Casa Colibrí regularly receives and responds to requests for donating books to establish small local libraries, which many communities recognize as critical for fostering interest in reading and literacy in their younger members.
From the village of Monte Bello, meet “The Enforcers”, or the Library Commission the village school in one such community. They may be young, but between the five of them they devised the lending-library system for their two-room school house. They are very proud of their accomplishments and make sure all books are returned on time and in good condition.
