Monthly Update: April Newsletter 2019
One year into our newest project, the library is flourishing! Our librarian and project leader is Martha Suazo, a member of Linaje Church and a former teacher.
She has ably shepherded our library from a dream into reality. The library's name is "Casa de Conocimiento" which means House of Knowledge. She is striving to make it a welcoming place for the entire community to gather and learn. So far, we have approximately 800 books in our library and 3 computers with internet access.
The library has been a busy place with classes from local schools coming for classes led by Martha in such things as research and essay writing. Kids come before and after school to work on class assignments and use the internet and printing capabilities. During school breaks, the library has worked cooperatively with local schools to provide tutoring to children who need some extra attention, while the local city government has pitched in with paying for some of the tutoring costs and providing a snack for the students. Also, a local artist offered some special art classes during school vacation which were well received!
Goals for the upcoming year include: more books, additional special classes by the art teacher, family movie nights, and an independent board to guide the future of the library. Want to help? Here are some ways.
(1) Pray for Martha and her amazing leadership and dedication.
(2) Buy some books for us https://smile.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/13DX023IE7RX7/ref=cm_go_nav_hz?fbclid=IwAR20Dtz4AA0LHRC9ADjE-D-F_Uged6HqKlFnNh-UTvTq62qi70zkP7Bri7s
(3) help us buy an additional computer as Martha reports there is often a waiting line after school.
(4) If you love the arts and music, donate some money to help us offer special classes in the arts and music.
