The library opened its doors in February 2012 as the first lending library in Panama. The modern 3 story stone and glass building is a distinguished addition to the Boquete landscape. Free wi-fi and computers with internet are available, while the 3rd floor art gallery features monthly displays from local artists. Check the online calendar for concerts and activities. Open Mon-Sat 10am-7pm

The "new" Boquete Biblioteca is a center of community activity, frequently hosting art and photography exhibits and musical performances. Of course it's a great library too, with both English and Spanish books and a computer center. For a town this size it's a great resource!

I was here for the meeting with the US Embassy, and the library provides a great space for integrating gringo and panamanian community needs.

Remarkable building for such a small town. Square blocks with glass walls around an open staircase with a glass pyramid shaped roof. Quite modern, however there is a traditional tiled cover over the lobby area. Free internet and there is a small café inside.

The library is vibrant with local art, globally sourced books and comfortable seating to invite one to sit and read. I was delighted to see many children using the facility and also saw that a class schedule was posted for various activities.
