I don’t know how many people actually know it exists, but Adeje has a central municipal library in the town’s Cultural Centre. It’s been closed for refurbishment but has now reopened. Councillor Juan Desiderio Afonso Ruiz says that the main repairs were carried out on the glass dome which had leaked during recent rains, but now all is complete and the library is back to its regular hours.
The library offers an excellent range of books, periodicals, films and music for all ages. There is a growing selection of novels in a variety of different languages for both children an adults as well as an excellent range of reference material. There are also study desks and a number of computers which can be used on request. Membership is free, so the council says that there’s no excuse not to use this welcome resource – and to encourge the area’s children to do so during term time as well as at weekends.
