Fiesta de Libros - We bring the library to the children.

Thank you for your interest in Fiesta de Libros! 
 

We launched the program on April 14, 2012

For seven years we have been providing children access to books at Plaza Fiesta.  We estimate that we have given away over 25,000 books!

Mission
The mission of Fiesta de Libros is to expose children to age-appropriate literature, provide them with books they can enjoy at home, and be a clearing house for children's books in our community.  The long-term goal of this program is for children to develop a love of reading that they can carry into adulthood and eventually pass on to their own children.  

In order to accomplish our mission, we need your help!  Fiesta de Libros is 100% volunteer operated.
 
Please keep reading and explore our website to learn more about the program and about ways in which you can help.
 
 
PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
We provide a community library where children can read on site, take a book home (for free!), and exchange books they bring from home. We also host readathons, story time, and board game sessions throughout the year.

ANNUAL BOOK FESTIVAL
We host an annual book festival for selected schools in March during the school day. There are approximately 200 children who participate. It is one of our favorite events! We will be hosting our 7th book festival in March of 2020.

A public Latino book festival is being planned for 2020. Stay tuned!


LOCATION
Our first location is at Plaza Fiesta mall, unit X12, near Shoppers World

Plaza Fiesta is the largest Latino mall in the Southeast located at the intersection of Buford Highway and Clairmont Road in Atlanta, Georgia.  
 
We hope to have more locations in the future.  Please contact us if you are interested in starting and managing a location.

The library is open EVERY DAY 
on a self-serve honor system

WHO WE SERVE
The majority of the children that participate in our program at Plaza Fiesta are under the age of 12 with the largest number of children being between 5 and 7 years of age.  Most of the children are bilingual, so we accept donated books that are written in English, Spanish, or in both languages.
