One of the highlights of my two week visit to Oaxaca has been the Libros para Pueblos tour to Benito Juarez Primary School in Guadalupe Etla. I have been on a tour before but this was the first time for my friend, Janet, who is a retired pre-school teacher.
|The children read in pairs.|
|Library rules: no running, no yelling, do not enter with food, take care of the books....|
|I organized the picture books at Oaxaca Lending Library last year.|
I worked three days at Oaxaca Lending Library this year. I love being part of the book room team.
Their dedication to books is great! At home, the library is becoming less of a "book place" and more of a "learning commons."
At home, I could not work in a public library for free but I have helped to straighten the shelves of our "give and take" library at Apple Greene where I live.
On leaving Oaxaca Lending Library, I was able to purchase the next book for my book club.
I'll be reading the book on my way home to Vancouver on Monday.
