Where to borrow books in English in Quito, Ecuador. May 2012.

News about the Damas Library in Quito:
It is not Damas library anymore (the last meeting Damas had was about two years ago).  It is a separate entity now - "The Library".  The librarian was really enthusiastic telling us that he is registering "The Library" as a non-profit organization.   "The Library" has books and magazins in English, it has books in English for kids as well.
Membership cost $15 per year and to borrow a book for two weeks cost 30 cents.
The librarian asked me for event ideas - he wants to hold some events in the library.  I did have some ideas - we have some board games:
Apples to Apples and Rummikub.  I offered to bring these games some Saturday morning, let's say once per month or once per two months and have a "Saturday Games" day.  We have yet to set up a date for the first "Saturday Games".
