Meet Gina and Suzanne who share the dream of providing the vibrant community of Bahía with a mobile lending library service.
They envision an assortment of Spanish and English books to lend to the children of Bahía as well as Spanish books for the adult community ranging from homemaking to astrology.

Suzanne is a retired library technician and because of her love of books, she would like to offer that privilege to read to the people of Bahía. “I was especially inspired to do this”she said,“when a young boy from the community asked if having a mobile library meant he would have to rent a book.”

Gina, founder of a community garden, aspires to teach music and art to the children of Bahía. She has a plethora of ideas for many activities she can do with the children to help them thrive and learn while having ‘fun’ at the same time.

You have probably seen the colorful boxes stationed at the DAWG Center, Bazar y Librería El Manantial, La Feria, Farmacia Ibarra, and the Marino Ballena Restauant in Uvita and the Church in Bahía, inviting you to give a donation (books or money) towards ProJect Book Movil.

An ancient proverb comes to mind: “It takes a whole village to raise a child.”

Lend a Book, Open a World!
