American Corner

American Corner is a partnership between the Public Affairs Section of the Embassy of the United Sates and Biblioteca Pública Mayor Thomas. It provides access to current and reliable information about the U.S. via book collections, the Internet, and through local programming to the general public. Sponsored jointly by the U.S. Embassy and the library, the American Corner serves as an information outpost similar to a public library reference service. The multi-media, book and periodical collections are open and accessible. Associated reading or meeting rooms are made available to host program events and activities (i.e. author readings, films, speaker programs, workshops, films, meetings, and exhibits).

This American Corner is a gift from the people of the United States to the people of Limon, Costa Rica to strength the friendship relations between both countries.
