This was our second trip to this lovely little library. Completely run off of volunteer, and donations (no formal funding) this truly is a heartwarming experience. They run lots of programs for kids - including teaching English...they are keeping these kids off the streets providing a safe environment for them to learn and grow.

The library itself is hosted within two buildings on a lot which has been lent to the community by the local town council. The library organizes all kinds of programming for children, including English-language courses. And of course, there are books, all... More

We went there with supplies that we bought before our trip and we would have done more if we could. The place is beautifully decorated even if they have little, close to nothing. The staff we met were kind and trying very hard to talk with us in english/spanish. If you want to do something good, check their website to... More

We were thrilled to visit the Hekab Be Library and see the wonderful things the staff/volunteers are doing to help children in their community to achieve their full potentials. They not only offer summer programs for area children, but they also offer after school classes to help with their learning. They even offer yoga! Participating children receive backpacks and supplies... More

Last week approx 75 Canadian folks representing RONA home improvement stores jumped into the library and painted everything in sight. Adding a few murals, nice seating arrangements, new shelfing, etc. Also, a basic basketball court was installed, though the surface is rough limestone, it should be useable after many happy little feet tamp the rock. You should see the delight... More
