Owner description: Hekab Be Biblioteca is a community library that operates solely on donations. We receive no government funding and do not charge for our services. In addition to a fully functioning library system, we have an afterschool program for local children ages 3-12 that provides activities/classes in English, music, art, yoga, environmental education, sports, and more!

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.
