The library was without electricity since Hurricane Wilma hit in mid July until early January. Aaah to have lights in a dark little room cluttered with books! Aaah to have an electric fan circulate the air!!! And when it gets really hot, that room air conditioner will be cranking!!! The kids, parents and staff are MUCH more comfortable and happy at the library now.
Once the power was back, Maggie, Emilia & Carlos undertook a major cleaning effort to air out the library, which had become very musty, and repainted the inside. They are still in the process of reorganizing the books to make it less cluttered. Stop by and ask Maggie how you can help with additional items to help the library recover.
The hurricanes are past, but it takes time to put everything back in place.
A special thanks to Emilia & her husband for getting the electricity problem solved!

During winter break, classical music was made fun for the kids. They listened to the likes of Beethoven and Mozart, discussed the music and broadened their world. The kids loved it. During the February break, the library helpers plan to introduce the children to fine art from famous Mexican artists. They may live in a little pueblo, but we try to open up the world for them. The globe Alice brought I few years back has gotten a workout, as the kids spin it and dream of places far away.
