We attended an acoustic instrument symphony -of which the songs' meanings were translated throughout. We had a glass of wine. Surrounded by local artwork. The library seems new and very modern and full of books, with sculptures, and photography throughout.

I loved this library. The building is modern and inviting. They have a good collection for a small library - in both English and Spanish. They have books for sale and I was happy to be able to buy some books in Spanish for my little granddaughter.

They also have summer programs for children there and I happened upon a children's program about recycling that was really fun to listen to and improve my Spanish.

They also have an extensive collection of National Geographic Magazines going back several decades. They were fun to browse.

It was the Flower Festival. The streets were filled with vendors and the skies with rain, rain, rain. This small library with cafe was a retreat. We read the local papers, watched 8-10 locals learning how to use the computers there, looked at a stunning quilt show of local artists, and felt in touch with the beauty of Boquetel.

The library was the first in Panamá to lend books out. It is a modern building in center of town. There are art shows in lobby and third floor. Clean restrooms, free wifi, free computers nice couches, in other words a great place to hang out especially in rainy season.

If you are looking for books, newspaper or internet you can find those at the library in Boquete. The librar is three blocks from Sugar and Spice as you are leaving Boquete. The restaurant serve a great brekfast and lunch if you are tired of beans and rice.
