Press to access resources

Hello Puerto Rico!

Hello Puerto Rico! The entire staff of our community libraries is working from home and hoping our regular users will use the Library to find ways to stay informed and up to date on opportunities for downloading books, music and more with a focus on what our island has to offer for research, learning and entertainment. 


Closing our libraries has been painful. We miss all our regular visitors, especially our students! But as we have learned to make many of our classes and services virtual, we realize that we now have a great opportunity to reach out across the internet and open our treasure chest of online resources to an audience beyond our region. 

Recognized us as a 2019 Best Practices Honoree


Begun as a lending library by community activist Jane Stern in 1974, JSDCL quickly became a bilingual learning centre 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, and in 2001 the Ángel Ramos Foundation recognized the library’s contributions with the prestigious Tina Hills Community Service Prize.
