Info about the Pucara Library


In 2001 a group of young adults originally from Pucara studying and working in Santa Cruz organized a book and funds collections with the intent of creating a library for their hometown. Over 600 books were collected as well as enough funds to purchase some tables and chairs. The books, tables, and chairs were installed in the high school office making the space small and difficult to use. The need for a building dedicated solely to the library has been identified by the community as a pressing need. The construction of a community library will not only meet a community need to build the capacity to build knowledge it will also provide a meeting space for the community. The community is excited by and committed to this project. The community will provide a building to be renovated for the library, some materials and all the labor. They are requesting Partnership assistance to purchase the constructions materials needed for the renovations, books, tables, chairs, and other educational items.
