MEL is a garden where one can relax in the shade of our neem tree. MEL is a venue for cultural events such as lectures on – Aging Successfully, 17th Century Merida, the Maya Calendar. MEL is a place where writer’s workshops and conversations in English and Spanish take place. MEL is where friends meet and where folks make new friends.
Volunteers staff us, and almost all books in the Library have been donated to us by generous members and friends. The library functions not only as a book-lending center but also as a community center. Bring a group of your friends and play dominos, backgammon, Scrabble, or do some jigsaw puzzles. We also offer an Internet connection to the community at large for ten pesos per half hour!
We offer for sale a variety of books (a bargain at $20 pesos each), Neem Tree Farms Lotions, tinctures and Outdoor Gel (for those nagging mosquitoes), the "official" new library logo apron and a MEL book bag.
Won't YOU come by and see what all the excitement is about? Better yet, become a MEL member and experience it ALL for a very low membership fee.
