A Message from BPLG's President

Welcome to the Bibliotecas Para La Gente website and the organization. BPLG’s mission is to promote the development of library services to the Spanish-speaking and Latino population of Northern California. Bibliotecas Para La Gente also supports library professionals, paraprofessionals, and educators working with the Spanish-speaking and Latino communities.

On our website you will find relevant information regarding events, co-sponsorships, professional development grants, scholarship and resources.

Bibliotecas Para La Gente welcomes new members. Whether you are a librarian, student pursuing your MLIS, a retired librarian, library professional, or library supporter.

The success of BPLG rests on its members, let’s carry on our 40-year tradition of community service librarianship to as many people as we can.  Join us and bring your creativity and contributions to the table. The Board of Officers welcomes your initiatives and leadership to volunteer and serve on committees.

I look forward to meeting you on our bi-monthly meetings. Feel free to contact me anytime.


Armando Rivera
Bibliotecas Para La Gente President, 2016-2017
