“At most, a student could check out a book once a week,” Lidia Quieju, the Project Coordinator, explains. “During the three year project phase, we helped the library implement cataloging methods, utilize call numbers, and also train the librarians”. Now students at La Cumbre have a running library with an ample supply of books, and a cozy place where they can sit and spend time exploring new stories-- and students are certainly making use of it.
