We are holidays in Puerto de la Cruz and have joined as temp members. The people could not be friendlier, and the gardens are amazing, wonderful old house with thousands of books to borrow. Thoroughly recommend a visit.

It was by accident I came across this English library when I was on holiday in Tenerife. It was near the hotel I stayed in and is a real oasis for someone who can't read Spanish books.

I never used the Library but my wife used it a couple of times and said the staff were very friendly and helpful. It's very cheap too.

Adjacent to our hotel, the Sol Parque San Antonio, we find this wonderful library. It's run by volunteers providing an English library service, both for residents and tourists. Great selection of books, DVD's jigsaws etc.. can get temporary membership if you're on holiday.

This is a brilliant library. Books, videos,C.D.s It is all run by volunteers who either live locally or visit at certain times of the year. The gardens are absolutely fabulous. A must, well worth the effort of the walk up from Puerto centre.
