Puedo Leer Biblioteca

Puedo Leer (I Can Read) is the name of the first lending library in Granada, Nicaragua. Years ago a group met to discuss how to bring to reality the first lending library in the area. Now the dream has grown to include two additional reading rooms, regular book deliveries to local and rural schools, mobile libraries, reading in the park and many other book-related activities. More importantly, we are seeing more children reading and listening to stories.
Our mission is simply to bring the joy of reading to the people of Nicaragua. Please visit the website to see what we are doing and how you can help.
