Stories about Xela Civic Libraries from July, 2013
Following the project summary of the Rising Voices grantee project Xela Civic Libraries, we take a look at some of the content created in each of the three community libraries in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala. These blog posts are snapshots of daily life taking place at the library and in the surrounding community.
We look back at the past year in the work of Xela Civic Libraries, a 2012 Rising Voices grantee. The project took place in three community libraries in rural municipalities in the Quetzaltenango Department in Guatemala. Focusing on access to information and the sharing of news and activities on the community library blog, the project helped bring attention to local issues facing these communities.
