"To Mexico, with Love" (https://mexico.uc.iupui.edu/) is a cultural immersion and service-learning program offered at Indiana University-Purdue University. TMWL participants study abroad in Cuernavaca, Mexico, at the school of IDEAL (http://www.ideal-school.com/), for one month and they also volunteer at designated community sites. This year a team of 16 will be building a library at the La Lagunilla community center!
The IUPUI University Library Diversity Fellowship (http://www.ulib.iupui.edu/about/diversity/fellows) is collaborating with TMWL in order to organize and set up this library. The Fellows are working on doing inventory of books and other library materials that have been donated, and then they will create an effective catalog system for the school (there are no computers at La Lagunilla). The Fellows have also been accepted into the program and will be traveling to Mexico to partake in the study abroad, and they will help in the construction and organization of the library!!
"To Mexico, with Love" is accepting donations of easy-reader books, easy-readers in Spanish, English to Spanish books, educational books,adult books and anything else to build up the new library at La Lagunilla. The community center serves about 80+ children and mothers.
