Yes, I would like to make a 100% tax-deductible donation to support The San Juan del Sur Biblioteca Móvil. Contributions are made through the Hester J. Hodgdon Libraries For All Program, a Colorado-based 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization. Financial contributions go a long way. Your gift — in any amount — is multiplied ten-fold when it is invested in our program. Please consider a gift of:

  • $50, which will buy new children’s books
  • $100, which will buy new children’s books and a month’s worth of art supplies
  • $150, which will pay for a month of English or computer classes for members of the community
  • $250, which will cover the total operating expenses of the mobile project for one month
  • $350, which will buy one library in a box start-up kit (not including books )
  • $500, which will provide 5 months worth of books and supplies
  • $1000, which will cover the total operating expenses of the lending library for one month

(You may also give any other amount you wish by clicking the “Make a donation” button at the bottom of this page.) In addition to making books, English and computer classes, arts education, and recreation available to San Juan del Sur and 27 surrounding rural communities, the Biblioteca Proyecto Movil is a source for training and employment of local Nicaraguans. The librarians, drivers and teachers that work at the Biblioteca Proyecto Movil are local people. This project is grassroots, non-partisan, and simple. There is no middleman and minimal overhead. Your gift has an immediate impact on the people of Nicaragua. By supporting the San Juan del Sur Biblioteca Móvil, you help remove obstacles to prosperity that people here face each day — obstacles to education and free access to information. However, in the simplest of terms, your gift removes one very tangible obstacle and creates instead a tangible opportunity: the opportunity for a child to walk up to a shelf of books, choose one that looks interesting, take it home, hold it in her hands, and read it.
