Students Celebrate the Opening of New Library

This summer our Pathways to Literacy team has been working hard to complete the construction of a library at Nueva Providencia Elementary School. The team has been making regular visits to the school to address the library’s needs, including fixing the leaky roof, delivering books and securing furniture for the students. After months of preparation, the library was finally opened to students and teachers on August 8!

Alongside the library’s construction needs, Pueblo a Pueblo has been training a librarian to run the operations of the Nueva Providencia library, and a team of eight student Literacy Ambassadors has been formed to help manage the library.  They will help keep the books organized and remind their peers to follow library rules.

The Nueva Providencia library support group has also been formed, made up of four mothers from the community, the school director and one teacher. Throughout the year, the group will receive trainings from Pueblo a Pueblo on library upkeep, cataloging methods, and development of dynamic literacy activities for the students. The school is on its way to having a well-run, self-sustaining library.

Although more infrastructure changes are still needed, students now have a place to read and borrow books. Esther Domínguez, Pueblo a Pueblo’s Education Program Assistant, noted that, “You can see the excitement on the kids’ faces. Before there was no library at all at Nueva Providencia School, but now they finally have a supply of books and a cozy corner to read them!”
