Community Library Project

Your travel has an impact....

Here at Go Tico!, community engagement is one of the most important values our company holds. That's why we started a community library project in our town of La Flor as a way to foster the love of reading for community members. Here in Costa Rica, there is not easy access to public libraries, reading is not a part of most school curriculum, and those people who love reading often find the cost of purchasing the limited books available inaccessible.

 

We firmly believe in the power of reading to uplift and transform lives as well as encourage kids to dream, connect with new ideas, and fuel their creativity. Our community library provides a free space for local residents, children and adults alike, to read, learn, and travel to new and exciting places in the pages of their books. Go Tico! Costa Rica and our sister organization, Casitas Joys & Leo support and promote this 100% volunteer & donation project.  Know that when your vacation works with us, you are a collaborator in these initiatives that have a positive impact in the communities you visit.

How You Can Help

If you live in the area of Madison, Wisconsin (USA), you can help us by collecting books in Spanish at all reading levels. We are happy to come pick up donations of new or used books that can be used in the library. Send us an email here if you are interested in scheduling a book pick up date or want to learn more about our community library project. You can also print the green poster download to the right and share it around your community to spread the word!

If you are outside of the Madison region, you can help us by starting an online fundraiser today! Simply print out the orange poster download to the right and share it in your community. We appreciate any and all efforts to help give residents in our rural communities the opportunity to learn and explore through books.

Thank you to our donors!
