Book Delivery – Tijuana, MX

On Saturday, September 26th, librarians from LIBROS, San Diego County, and Tijuana joined forces to provide a story time/art workshop/book delivery from RNC V materials that had been donated for the Children in Crisis program. We visited a large community residing just east of the scenic route to Ensenada, along the walls and at the base of a canyon. We met with Tijuana librarian Rosa Maria Toledo at the Benito Juarez Library, and headed 30 minutes south toward the neighborhood. She had arranged for us to use a community member’s patio for the event, where we had access to electricity.
