We are a meeting space for Discussion and Communtity Outreach.
And Yes! We are a library of books for adults & children, English & Spanish, audio books and DVD's.
We are more than a Library; we are a Community.
We are a gateway to the World with access to Computers and WiFi.
FROM THE OLL BOARD PRESIDENT
There’s a lot planned for the coming year – including redecorating the library. And lots of programs are in the works.
BUT – much of it cannot happen without more volunteers, who are the lifeblood of the OLL. For example:
- Chair and members for the Outreach Committee
- Coordinators and assistants for Hoofing It in Oaxaca and for Out & About
- Chair and members for the Communications Committee
- Member(s) with finance and/or accounting experience for the Finance Committee
Join us!! It’s fun and rewarding!
And you don’t necessarily have live full-time in Oaxaca!
Interested in exploring how you can contribute?

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.
