Recent Events

The week of December 5th was an especially good one for the Hekab Be library. In particular, we were visited by many of the "Loco Gringo folks"- many dropping by with items for the children, many of them with financial contributions, a few who talked computer needs with us, and all genuinely concerned about this wonderful little library. We met many new people and welcomed back several old friends. Thursday, December 8th, the Loco Gringo board held a Happy Hour at Lol Ha that raised approximately $403.00 to be used for the purchase of a new roof. Sincere thanks to all of you who were there and we will load pictures as the project gets underway.
Saturday, December 10th, we held a Bazaar with items that had been donated by the community. The sale was a such a success we will probably be doing it every 2 months. We are getting back on track- finally!
Reminder - Please drop by and visit with us - our Christmas party will be held Thursday, December 22nd, in the morning, complete with Pinatas, cake, presents and Santa!

Hi Maggie!

I stopped by on Thanksgiving Day, 2005, and Carlos said you had gone back to the US.

I'm a Children's Librarian from the Pittsburgh PA region, I was staying at the Palladium. :)
