This tiny library is an inspiration. It provides a wonderful opportunity for children to read books of all sorts. They welcome donations of money and books as they are entirely self funded.

This facility provides a very needed service to the children of the Medina, it is a humble place that does great work. It is partnered with the Road Laaroussa very near by as a community out reach. Kids are great.

This is an inspired project, which works really well. There should be one of these on every street corner. That there is one in the heart of the Fez Medina is a wonder. Do try and visit and support this great library.
