For the past 10 years we have provided a free children's after school program for the children of Baños de Agua Santa - lovingly known as La Biblioteca Interactiva de Baños and in English - "The Interactive Library of Baños." On our shelves we offer over 1200 Spanish language children's books that we have received thru in kind donations.
Since October 1rst, 2019 we have moved to the beautiful city of Pelileo Grande. Arte del Mundo is located at 30 minutes from Baños, a city of extreme sports, at 15 minutes from Patate a wonderful and enchanted town, where it offers fruits, flowers and a variety of gastronomy, 10 minutes from Pelileo a commercial city, where you can find some streme sports, clothes and try local and international food. we continue with the mission of after school activities with children and free English programs, working with our national and international volunteers. Our children’s library is open Monday through Friday from 3:30 to 6:00, for children 6 to 12 years old. The first hour of each day we focus on developing the love of reading. Reading, stories, literacy and comprehension.
From 4:30 to 6:00 we offer creative arts experiences. These activities are inspired by the talents of volunteers who help staff the program. Activities have included art, music, dance, theater, games, yoga, science experiments, games, and cooking.
Our library is generously run by volunteers from around the world. Help us help the children - share your love. See the Volunteer page for more information.
