Donor Choice Program
The Biblioteca needs your continuing support to ensure that its education, scholarship program and book collection survive and continue to expand to serve the needs of all members in the community. These programs are a vital part of the vision and commitment of the library to San Miguel and especially Mexican Students. They help secure the future of the library and its role in serving a bi-cultural audience with access to educational and cultural resources. Your donations to these programs will help us to successfully meet our mandate for the future generations and provide a better quality of life for all participants.
La Biblioteca Donor Choice allows you to designate your donation to a specific program. We have carefully studied and accessed the areas within the library that would benefit the most from your generous gift of money.The 3 programs are Scholarships, Education Programs and Library Books. Please choose the program that appeals the most to you.
Library Book Choice
Books are the heart and soul of libraries and this true for La Biblioteca de San Miguel. Hundreds of San Miguel students use the books in the library so we need to provide them with necessary tools to expose them to new ideas and the world. Collections in both English and Spanish must be renewed.

Since the 1960´s the Biblioteca has provided poor students in San Miguel and its´ rural communities with scholarships. These scholarships allow students to complete middle school, high school and university. We presently have 237 scholarships students and many more are still waiting.
