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!

We now have a permanent space and the library is ALWAYS 

open and accessible on the honor system

Thank you to all of our volunteers and 

sponsors for your amazing support over the 

past seven years!

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.


PROGRAM HOURS

The library is open EVERY DAY

on a self-serve honor system

from 11:00am - 8:00pm

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.
