Guatemala Program

Librarians Without Borders Guatemala Partners are: the Miguel Angel Asturias Academy and Limitless Horizons Ixil.

LWB and the Asturias Academy have worked in partnership to promote literacy and learning since 2009. The focus of this collaboration is on development and operation of a school and community library. By creating a community library in Xela to serve students, their families and members of the community, we aim to foster a love of reading and promote education.

LWB has been working with Limitless Horizons Ixil since 2013. The Saber Sin Límites (Limitless Knowledge) Community Library opened in 2010 as the first and only community library in Chajul. With a membership of 1,400 users—ranging in age from four to forty—and counting, 3,783 titles, two librarians, and many helping hands, the library is making reading fun and popular in Chajul.

The success of these project is built on the contributions of many LWB volunteers and donors. Help us continue to support literacy in Guatemala by giving to the Librarians Without Borders Guatemala Program:
