I read to my little brother

I read to my little brother

Kids reading to kids; now we are onto something!

While reviewing the wishlist for the Caldo de Piedra Library Project, I occurred to me who little things can make a difference. Some items in the list include wooden signs, cd player, dvds, pigeon hole cupboard… an so on. Check it for yourself. I know I will be donating a set children’s books in Spanish and others little things in the list.

I am a firm believer of library projects and non-institutionalized education since I, myself, was one of those kids. Like the motto for the Probigua’s bibliobús reads, “if you read, you succed“. With the quote below, I finished last year’s overview of the Mobile Library Project of Probigua.

…I am living proof that education, reading and libraries are a solid ladder through which one can climb to success, whatever one decides that is. If I was not an Art Director/Graphic Designer, I would be a librarian.

  • Projects like this one touch upon one of the most important issues in Guate– literacy. Congratulations to the people behind Caldo de Piedra Library Project! I’ll get in contact with you regarding this project if you don’t mind. Now, in regards to this subject, I saw a billboard on our way inland to Coban (I think) that read, “Un pueblo que lee progresa” and I agree. I also saw supplements for kids in Prensa Libre (I think it was Prensa Libre). About your quote: I agree wholeheartedly, but hey now! I would like to be a librarian too. 😀

  • This is such a lovely photo! Access to books is so important to promote literacy, because it is not just about learning the mechanics of it, but to enjoy and live different lives and explore other worlds through literature. I was really blessed by the libraries of the houses of both my parents. Oh how I miss that metal office furniture thing with glass doors where you could see the encyclopedias… and one or other subversive book, like “La Patria del Criollo” and my favourite book “El Principito” which is subversive in its own way 😉

    Carmen: I’ve seen that billbord too (or at least one like it anyways…) and I agree, it’s so true, literacy is so important!
