WELCOME TO OUR COMMUNITY LIBRARY
1/8

Hello Puerto Rico, we are back!

Begun as a lending library by community activist Jane Stern in 1974, The Jane Stern Dorado Community Library (JSDCL) quickly became a bilingual learning center for language, literacy, and after-school programs as a 501(c) (3) non-profit corporation. The municipality of Dorado provided space for several expansions over the years. 

Our main library in Dorado is open for counter services, computer use, and curbside delivery of books and public school lesson modules. To provide you with the safest possible experience, we have added Plexiglas barriers, medical-grade HEPA air purifiers, and carefully monitored disinfection protocols. 


JSDCL is excited to introduce you to our new Executive Director, Bairá Soto Toledo. Ms. Soto Toledo joins us with over a decade of community service and extensive experience in non-profit program management. Bairá inspires us with her optimism, creative ideas, enthusiasm, and sense of humor. Her leadership embodies JSDCL’s vision for connecting our communities through learning opportunities.
