The Culebra Community Library is a real oasis in the modern day world of corporate organizations and big business. This little library was created with love and community effort. The selection of books is first-rate, as people passing through and on island donate some of their good reads. Lori Novis has filled the children's room with wonderful kids' books through her grantwriting skill and effort. Claire Fallon, Culebra's very own yoga maestra, is in charge of the little movie theatre, and she selects films based on a theme each month. Seeing a movie in a theatre the size of a shoebox (it is housed in a donated trailer) is simply one of the 'most fun' things you can ever do. I loved watching a Pedro Almodavar classic with friends in this tiny, quirky 'movie house'.
This library has made such a difference in the life of Culebra, for residents and for those just passing through.
You will enjoy the friendly, bilingual staff, and meet other nice and interesting people, when you visit.. The porch (with free Wi-fi!) is a nifty hang out spot, and provides a bit of shade from the tropical sun. You can browse through the free books, or check out the books for loan in air conditioned comfort in the library itself.
