Biblioteca 14 de Enero

Quick Facts

Inaugurated January 2006

BiblioWorks’ 2nd library

Municipal Library

3 hours from Sucre

BiblioWorks inaugurated its second library in the colonial town of Presto in January 2006. The region enjoys a warm, subtropical climate, and the majority of its population works in agriculture. Although the municipality is one of the most poverty-stricken of Bolivia, the library occupies a large building on the central plaza.

While other libraries may be more popular with elementary-school children, Biblioteca 14 de enero is usually full of high school students. They formed a library chess club, and in 2012 they proudly represented Presto at a national competition.
