Books are core to our mission of bringing the joy of reading to the people of Nicaragua. Puedo Leer will accept books in any language and for all age groups but is primarily looking for children’s books in Spanish and dual-language Spanish-English books. Each book donated feeds the minds of hundreds of Nicaraguan children.
Visiting Nicaragua? Bring us your unwanted books in your suitcase, come into a library, and say “hello!” This is essentially how Puedo Leer started! Generosity goes a long way, and 100 people bringing in five books each could help us spread the love to more children.
Have too many books to bring them with you? We have several methods to get books into the country. There is no such thing as too many books! We accept big or small donations and are affiliated with many organizations in Nicaragua, so every book will reach the hands of a developing, Nicaraguan child. Remember, we are primarily looking for Spanish books for children or dual-language Spanish-English books. Contact us if you’re unsure about the process, and we can help you.
Like to donate some e-readers? We love books, but we recognize the reading revolution is converting people to e-books. We accept electronics as donations too, including Kindles, Nooks, iPads, other e-readers, and computers. We will put them to use, and the kids love it.
