Hard Work Pays Off For The La Cruz Open Air Library

Jennifer Brinckmann - Amigos de La Cruz
July 16, 2013

If you were here last summer, you probably remember the benefit at Philo’s for La Cruz’ Biblioteca al Aire Libre (Open Air Library).

This summer the founders of the library, Sergio Regelado and Angelica Ramirez, are excited to announce that one of their goals has been met.

After more than a year of saving, scrimping and collecting donations they were able to purchase an 8 x 16 open-sided cargo trailer.

With Glen Burch’s donation of windows and the addition of walls, shelves and a book bar, they created a mobile library!

To “top it off” the receipt of a donation from Amigo Jimmy Lennon will enable them to replace the current thin plywood roof with solid corrugated plastic. This badly needed upgrade will keep the contents dry and shaded during our hot, wet summers.

Sergio and Angelica want to give a huge thank you to everyone who has helped them meet this goal. Without the support of all of you, the library would not be happening.

The Amigos would like to add that Sergio and Angelica could always make use of additional donations. Needed items are cash for supplies and upgrades, and books – lots of books in English and Spanish for all levels of readers.

While the library is focused on language and reading skills for children, adults are welcome too.

As of the posting of this article you can find the library parked in front of the Ejido office at Calles Sierra and Langosta, but the goal is to move the location every 15 days to give everyone equal access.

If you see them in your neighborhood on a weekday evening after 5:30 be sure to stop in to ask how you can benefit as well as how you can help!

Note: While the library is supported by the Amigos de La Cruz, it is not an Amigos project and is solely under the direction of Sergio and Angelica.
