OLL Mission Statement

Our mission, as a nonprofit Asociacion Civil, is to be a living library and cultural center serving the Oaxacan community. We are a lending library that offers materials for loan to our Members, along with onsite access to the general public. The OLL fulfills its mission by providing: 


~  multimedia and bilingual reading, educational, and entertainment materials for all ages; 

~  language programs to encourage biliteracy and cross-cultural competence; 

~  an inclusive venue for cultural and social events that foster solidarity and appreciation; and 

~  collaboration with other local NGOs to promote community empowerment.  


We seek to inspire a love of reading and learning across generations and cultures.
