Great stop for the reader. excellent selection of english books. And a healthy selection of used books for sale if you like me are headed to the beach. The deposit is a deposit but "come on" leave it as donation for a great service!!

locally sponsored and run, it is nice to see publicly accessible establishments that cater to locals and learning at the same time.

The library is conducive to reading, learning, exploring.

We live in Quepos but stop by a every couple weeks to change books. Liana is so accommodating and will come over even after hours because she knows we aren't from the area. it was something I loved to do as a child and now I can share that experience with my own kids. A good selection of both English and Spanish books.

It is a great opportunity for children and adults to be in a library atmosphere. Very active with children's learning. Special tutoring, story reading, science projects and nature of Costa Rica in general. Completely done by a wonderful lady named Liana and a handful of devoted volunteers. A must see for anyone that comes and wants to help the community!
