The day before their 1-year anniversary, the Yamparaez library committee organized a special event to celebrate both the 1st anniversary of the library and the annually celebrated “Kids Day”.  The elementary school teachers prepared their students for an educational poster contest, where each classroom had to choose a topic related to either children’s’ rights and responsibilities or to literacy and books.  READ MORE

BiblioWorks opened two new community libraries in Bolivia this year!

Over the summer, a 40-foot, 17,000-pound shipping container full of materials arrived in Chile and was transported over the Andes Mountains into Sucre, Bolivia. With the help of BiblioWorks staff and volunteers, 15 pallets of furniture and 10,000 books were unloaded and sorted. Our new libraries in Villa Serrano and Yamparaez received their books and furniture by the middle of July and officially opened at the end of the summer.
