Welcoming Library
Jun 2021
The Boquete library has a collection featuring books in both Spanish and English and will keep you stocked with fiction and non-fiction. Because the library relies mainly on donations you may not find the latest literary sensation in a timely manner, but I anticipate being busy for years to come with this collection, thus lowering my annual donation to Mr. Bezos's coffers . . .

Boquete Library

After a walk from the main part of town along Avenida Central, I had a chance to relax with some books! Several sections of books were for sale, in English and in Spanish. Wanting to improve my Spanish skills, I sought out children books but noticed that there were several titles to choose from - across a range of ages and topics, for 50c and $1. I even got an English language novel, for the plane ride home. The building was spacious and bright with the glass exterior letting in plenty of light. From there I could take the road on the other side of the building (parallel to AvenidaCentral), a quieter road up to the artisan market. Time well spent.

Great for us readers!

Wow, am I thrilled that Boquete offers such a wonderful library for use by residents and tourists alike! They have a nice selection of fiction, written in English, that is separated for easy browsing. Other categories include books in English and Spanish mixed together. As a temporary resident, I applied for my library card right away. It was ready in just a few days, but I was allowed to check out books while waiting for the card. As a tourist I paid $20, but will be refunded that amount before leaving the area. Its a beautiful, clean, well organized library, with a photo gallery on the top floor. I'd recommend it to all! Super friendly, helpful librarians are there to answer your questions.

We visited Boquete for one month and took out a tourist library membership. There is a good selection of books in English, and it was great to be able to read and relax on our vacation. The staff at the Library were very helpful to us. this Library is a huge asset to the community of Boquete, Panama.

There is a library in Boquete
Jul 2019
This building is easily recognizable as one enters the city of Boquete. The library employees are friendly. There are places to sit and relax. The building seems to be a multipurpose complex, clean and orderly. Unless you need a library as such, not much reason to spend time looking for it.

Adorable Modern Library

Loved walking through this library. It is a modern building with an art gallery on the top floor and well appointed space on the floors below.

I recommend walking through here if you are in Boquete.

Books & A Symphony
May 2018 • Couples
We attended an acoustic instrument symphony -of which the songs' meanings were translated throughout. We had a glass of wine. Surrounded by local artwork. The library seems new and very modern and full of books, with sculptures, and photography throughout.
