The Merida English Library is a nonprofit English-language lending library, with more than 12,000 books and DVDs and a busy slate of activities. They are known for lecture series and a high-season home-and-garden tour, both of which are listed on this events calendar (scroll down to see).
MEL is open to the public through a nominal membership fee.
MEL is based on the classic local public library model, which for many in the United States and Canada is a hub of community activities, networking, and information distribution.
Locals, tourists and visitors alike can gather to find answers to research questions, tap into wifi, or just relax with friends on in the garden.
