Our objective for the book donation program is to:

  1. To obtain significant literature and school supplies suitable to benefit the more needy schools in the Alajuela District.
  2. Receive donated books and class material in English, Spanish or French suitable for a school environment.
  3. The goal for Oct 1st 2010 is 1,000 more books, CDs, DVDs etc…

 

The “one wall” library for 702 students at Maurilio Soto Alfaro School. This school has Spanish and English program.
