Library: Construction

Quezalguaque’s first library was constructed in 2004 with support from the Brookline Sister City Project; the Brookline Rotary donated computers and library furnishings, and Brookline High School students raised $3,500 for books. Now open six days a week, the library is also used by residents of neighboring towns.

In addition, the Friends of the Brookline Public Library generously annually donate the proceeds from their February book sale to the library in Quezalguaque.

The Sister City Project has also funded a mobile library designed to make books available to children in outlying communities in the Quezalguaque area. Another project is an arts program in the main library that attracts younger people and affords students the opportunity to advance their artistic skills.
