After stocking up with books from the Sand Castle Library, our bookmobiles travel Monday - Friday to primary schools across the island of Roatan.   

Teachers are excellent partners in this project.  They have the children ready with their previously checked-out books, and ready to visit the bookmobile.  PIER's librarians

You can help to keep our bookmobiles rolling!

100% of the PIER $55,000 budget supports this project - keeping books on the shelves, paying salaries of the bookmobiles' two librarians and two reading specialists, fueling and maintaining the bookmobiles, and the Sand Castle Library and its librarian/STE(A)M leader. 

We are also desperate for Spanish-language books. Bring them when you come to the island, contact us on how to ship a large collection, or donate through PayPal to PIER for books.

We can't do it without you!
