A World of Reading for Maya Children in Guatemala

Pathway to Literacy in 2013

The new school year is in full swing and students at the Chukmuk Elementary School continue to take advantage of all the resources available at the school library. Witnessing the pure joy and excitement that students have during their library visits is a reminder of how important libraries are in a child’s education and development.


The literacy activities continue to supplement classroom learning, which fosters a much-needed love for reading in innovative and fun ways. Students carry on with learning the library’s cataloging system to facilitate their use of its resources and they’re quickly learning the rules to properly care for this learning environment.


Our first teacher training was conducted last week and teachers were encouraged to express their desires for the future of the Chukmuk School Library. Their ideas along with our ongoing collection development means a busy year in the continued effort to build a library that is a comfortable and useful learning environment for the entire Chukmuk community.
