Evidently the kids come after school and have activities directed by the staff. Very welcoming to visitors.

The library is a great example of a community working together for the local kids. Many visitors over the years have contributed to making this library an asset to the children. Summer programs, classes, and a place children can go, learn, and have fun makes this a place for visitors who want to give back, and opportunity to do so.

Support the local literacy efforts. It's a sweet little place across from the Dive Shop (square bldg, not round one directly on the beach).

We love being contributors to this program. It is devoted to the local children, providing them with educational experiences, and helping them have a successful future. Donations are very welcome, especially school supplies, clothing, and shoes.

What a gem this library is! We took a backpack full of goodies and made a donation. Then we were given a short tour of the library. From the colorful murals to the kindness of the workers, it's clear that this lovely library is doing great things for the kids in the local community.
