As a former librarian, I was happy to discover this place while on an early-morning walk. My husband and I returned later in the week and happily sponsored three children to attend the four week summer program which starts July 16th. We appreciated the tour and know that good things are being done with their limited resources.

Thank 979kaw

We brought a 50 pound suitecase with school supplies as well as letters from our school children to their school children. We provides a snack, shared a song and hugs: please help them it is a wonderful outreach to the community

We brought books and other school supplies and dropped them off at the school, they were truly appreciative and we were happy to do that. They need all the help they can get to educate the Children's there.

We dropped by the library to give them a donation. Check out their website to see what they need. They are providing a great service to local kids. They may also need volunteers if you are looking for that.

The library along the entry road to Akumal Bay gives visitors a better understanding of the economic hardships many of the children living in Mexico encounter on a daily basis. My family routinely visit and make both monetary donations as well as books, stuffed animals and small children toys to help reward the children who attend the library in hopes of bettering their education.

If in Akumal a stop at the library is a must. I always check the donations needed list before coming down. This is run purely on donations and is an amazing asset to the children of Akumal.

Beautiful place for local children and amazing staff. We dropped off a bag of donations for their program and stayed to read with the children and do some coloring. Children are usually there from 3-5 during the week.

We stopped by the library to donate items and participate in some of the activities. Everyone had a good time and my children are asking when they can go "back to school".

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