Boquete Lions Club working to get a new public library

The Boquete Public Library is a work built by the Lions Club of Boquete, which has fulfilled the task of providing information to thousands of young boqueteño students for decades.

With the fast growth experienced by Boquete, and considering the excellent location of the current Library, the Lions Club, with the support of an international foundation, committed itself to build a new library building, to comply with modern standards that such an information and culture must play these days.

It therefore therefor invited various architects to sumbit proposals and after a process of more than a month the design of architect Alfredo Boza, shown above, won. This modern design features windows that reflect the green mountains of Boquete. one of the most important attractions from this district, and incorporate modern concepts of the use of daylight, natural ventilation and air conditioning, as well as comfortable spaces for reading.

In addition to the construction, the building needs to be furnished and equipped in order to serve its purpose. Already the Lions of Boquete are making the contacts in order to obtain the additional funds. It's also goingto require the formation of a group of volunteers, who together with the librarian will be facilitators of this new information center.

The interior design reflects an intention to turn to the new library in meeting point for artistic, cultural, education and service group in the district.

Because this library will serve for the entire population --- children, youths, adults, elderly, boqueteños and new residents, in both English and Spanish --- it's seeking volunteers, advisors and board members from all these groups to make this project a reality.

We invite the community to support us in this important project that will incorporate the boqueteña community into the 21st century.
