Libros para Pueblos wants to share the knowledge of what we are doing with the rest of the world. You are our best advocate! Come with us and see what we do, why we do it and the satisfying results. 100% of the income from our tours is used to put books into the hands of the children and young people of Oaxaca, Mexico. The cost of each tour is $50 USD (650 pesos) per person payable the day of the tour. Donors who have made a five year pledge to adopt a library are invited to travel with us free of charge.
Regular tours: Our 1/2 day tour leaves from the Oaxaca Lending Library (Pino Suarez 519, Centro) at either 9:30am or 2:30 pm every Tuesday. Whether the tour is scheduled in the morning or afternoon depends on the libraries that are to be visited. We need a minimum of two and a maximum of seven people. This tour includes visiting two different libraries, meeting with the children and the people in charge of the library, photo opportunities, time to see the villages and a midday meal. Just contact us to reserve a seat in our van.
Special Tours: You are welcome to accompany us as we do our work. Inaugurations, town meetings, work sessions with librarians or annual visits to libraries are all an interesting way to get to see a part of Oaxaca that is not available to tourists. If the trip requires being away from the city of Oaxaca overnight you will be expected to pay your own hotel and meal expenses. These trips will be posted here and in the Oaxaca Lending Library.
May 21 & 22, 2013: Two day/one night trip to the Mixteca region of Oaxaca, We will leave Oaxaca at 9:30 am on the morning of the 21st and travel to Tlaxiaco where we will spend the afternoon working with the librarian as she learns how to put on an effective story/craft hour to attract younger students into the library. We will spend the night in Tlaxiaco and travel to San Pedro y San Pablo Teposcolula the morning of the 22nd. We will be inaugurating three new Libros para Pueblos libraries in the Teposcolula area in one day: San Felipe Ixtapa at 10am, San Miguel Tixa at 1pm and Santo Tomas Tecoloticlan at 4pm. We plan to be back in Oaxaca Centro before 8pm. Each participant will be responsible for their own food and hotel expenses plus a share in renting a van if it becomes necessary.
