Reading Material
Mazatlán Reading Library: You can't spend all your time on the beach,
touring the area and partying. No one has the strength for it. Take some time
and visit the Mazatlán Reading Library. It is a non-profit circulating library
specializing in English and Spanish literature. Donations, dues, and volunteer
workers support it financially. They will be happy to accept your donations of
cash and books. The library is stocked with over 6,000 books that are not eas-
ily found in Mazatlán. The material is not the type you leave in your rooms for
the maid when you head home. Operating hours are 9 a.m. to noon, Monday
through Friday.

like most of us, will find that there will be "So much to do, and so little time."
