Information Literacy for Guatemala
Organized by: Chelsea Weissman
Please help fund my travel expenses to Xela, Guatemala to help provide information literacy and learning with other like minded librarians volunteering with the non-profit organization Librarians Without Borders. On this service trip, we will be volunteering our time to ongoing collection management activities (cataloguing, processing, and organizing materials) and information literacy/outreach programming for students and teachers at the Asturias Academy. Librarians Without Borders has traveled to Xela every spring since 2010 to partner with the Asturias Academy to promote learning and literacy and I have been selected to join them this spring. By creating a community library in Xela to serve students, their families and members of the community, Librarians Without Borders aim to foster a love of reading and promote education. I appreciate all of the support (financial and emotional ) from everyone.
