In its first year, this project strengthened the role of the library in promoting reading and writing among community members of all ages and demonstrated to the people of Zaña and Cayaltí that their libraries are not just places for students and researchers but open to the whole community.

Run by Latidos out of the Miraflores library in Zaña and the municipal library in Cayaltí, the project offered children, youth and adults programs and workshops in reading and writing and will host a series of storytelling contests that draw on local cultural traditions and history as well as on the imagination.

With the onset of COVID-19 in 2020, the project went virtual and outdoor. With schools closed for the entire school year, Latidos filled the gap with activities that ran from wellness workshops with parents and children to arts and crafts to reading and storytelling.
