When Biblioteca Infantil Abrapalabra, A.C., opened their doors on Calle Guillermo Prieto, their board had a dream of opening branches in low-income neighborhoods in an effort to instill the joy of reading and learning in small children in those “colonias”. To that end, we of FANLAP signed an agreement with them to open their first such branch in our dining room/library/learning center building.
We had a room which they had remodeled with an entryway exclusive to Abrapalabra, and they also hired a teacher, Paola, for the children. At this time (2018) up to 15 children from ages 3 to 8 (and some older children) attend classes from 2:00 to 6:00 p.m. 5 days a week. We are grateful to Abrapalabra for helping in our efforts to offer children of impoverished neighborhoods the opportunity to learn.
