Adeje library celebrates 30 years
Adeje library is celebrating its 30th anniversary. Opened since 1989, this municipal installation has witnessed the growth of Adeje as a borough and the people who live here. During those 30 years, the library has helped a large number of people and at the same time has adapted to the changes over time and generations.
In the last year alone, the Adeje network of libraries dealt with over 24,000 people and lent out 8,597 books, CDs, DVDs and other items. The average monthly visit rate is just over 2,000, with nearly three quarters of those being adults.
Adeje library is part of the BICA (Canarian Libraries) network and is located in Adeje cultural centre. The library has a computer section, reading and study zone, over two floors. According to the councillor with responsibility for libraries, Juan Desiderio Afonso Ruiz, “Adeje library is a literary meeting point but also offers knowledge and learning. And given this special anniversary, we wanted to design a celebratory programme of events which reflect the value and worth the installation has in the borough.”
Still to come on May 2nd, Enrique Reyes will inaugurate an exhibition on the 30 years of the library. Events will conclude on May 6th with a poetry meeting, “XIX tardes de poesía Riardo Müller”, organised by the Piedra Redonda residents’ association.
All events will be in Spanish.
