Library tour – San José del Pacífico & Miahuatlán

January 30@9:00 am - January 31@4:00 pm

Would you like to spend two days in the cloud forest of San José del Pacífico?

Last year, a group of library sponsors and supporters helped to inaugurate the expanded children’s book collection in the municipal library in this beautiful and renowned mountain town, located three hours south of Oaxaca city and 7,800 ft elevation. The library project was initiated by a group of women educators and community activists to provide a needed resource for the children living a distance from a major city.

We will arrive on day one at noon to give us time to enjoy the coffee cafes, a wide range of restaurants, and hiking paths. In the afternoon we will visit the library to meet with the educators and read with the children.

We will stay in comfortable single- or double-occupancy cabañas with impressive views of the mountains and changing weather patterns.

On day two after breakfast, on the way back to Oaxaca we will spend time in the Libros-supported library in Miahuatlán de Porfirio Díaz to meet with the Regional Coordinator in charge of the area and read with the children in the library. After lunch, we will return to Oaxaca.

Join us on this special tour. A minimum of 6 people is requested and space is limited to 15 participants. Sign-ups will be allowed until January 24. For more information contact LPP staff at tour@librosparapueblos.org or 951 192 9600 (cell).
