Reader to Reader’s Costa Rica rural literacy project, Beyond el Campo has secured a temporary library space in the town of Santa Cruz.
The space will serve as a reading center and center for all Beyond el Campo's major literacy programs in Santa Cruz, that will be begin at the beginning of July.
Among these programs include a literacy camp for school aged children, a beginner's "reading" hour for toddlers and their mothers, and a women's book club, amongst others. Within the next year, we hope to begin on the construction of the permanent library space, which will be two floors and provide a spacious work environment.
Reader To Reader works together with local community members in rural Costa Rica in an effort to strengthen their access to books and over all literacy rate.
