Libraries for All

The San Juan del Sur Biblioteca is supported by the Hester J. Hodgdon Libraries for All Program, a Colorado-based,  tax-exempt charitable foundation established in 2003 to support the San Juan del Sur Biblioteca and to promote lending libraries in Central America.

In addition to its ongoing work in San Juan del Sur, the program has developed a variety of protocols and materials for new libraries, and its “library in a box” program has helped establish 12 additional libraries in Nicaragua, Guatamela, Honduras, and Costa Rica.

The program helps match donors worldwide with the needs of Central American libraries, and has established relationships with publishers, book wholesalers, library assocations, graduate programs, and others in the library field.
