Who is the Oaxaca Lending Library?

As a Mexican nonprofit association under state and federal law, the library is run by a volunteer board of directors nominated and elected by its membership during an Annual General Assembly Meeting (or AGAM). Volunteers maintain and run various committees necessary for the continued operation of our organization. We could not function without them!

Beyond our directors, the library employs three paid employees whose contributions to the maintenance and organization of the library, its policies and operations are essential, and we are deeply grateful for their service.
