Los Mangos Public Library has begun promoting their summer program for this year for children ages three to 13. But not every child can afford the cost of admission. “Every year we do our best to maintain our tuition costs competitive,” said Adriana Garcia, director for the cultural institution. “But the fact is, almost two third of our students will enroll expecting to receive a partial or full scholarship.” Approximately 100 children are expected to participate in the program.

Los Mangos Public Library, like many other cultural entities in Puerto Vallarta, exists thanks to donor funding, so involving the community is essential. The annual program involves a substantial staff of teachers and supervisors, committed to providing the students a safe, educational environment in which they immerse themselves in a variety of activities, including art, science, language and social skill development. The admission fee for the entire program is approximate $200 USD.

But you can help to make a difference. This year, Los Mangos Public Library is looking for donors that will contribute amounts in full or half-scholarship amounts, $200 USD or $100 USD, respectively. “If a donor requests it, we will gladly keep them updated of their scholarship student with photos,” García promised.

This year’s summer program theme at Los Mangos is “We Are All Heroes,” and it will take place July 18 – August 12.

“Vallarta Lifestyles is a platform that allows us to reach the kind of market that we’re looking for. I think that, since its beginnings, 30 years ago, it has been the best publication of the destination. There’s no doubt that part of our success is for the advertising that we have in the magazine.”

“We started to advertise in Vallarta Lifestyles because since its beginnings and to date it keeps using modern technological equipment to produce it and it is possible to notice that in the quality of the magazine, which offers interesting topics about the life of our destination through its articles and interviews to well known personalities. Actually, I keep a collection in my personal library.”

“Since its beginnings and until today, the quality in photography and editorial design of Vallarta Lifestyles is unrivaled, because there’s nothing similar in this region of Mexico. Besides, to the foreign community that visit us, this magazine is essential if they want to know what’s new and what’s going on in our destination.”
