Ambassador Todd Chapman assisted in the inauguration of the North American –Ecuadorian Center’s “Abraham Lincoln” library in Cuenca. This space had been previously inaugurated in 1957 to serve as a cultural rendezvous point between Americans and Ecuadorians. The North American-Ecuadorian Center offers English courses for students of all ages and also puts on multiple cultural activities.
The renovated infrastructure offers the public a modern and multifunctional library, with printed material, digital resources, and different spaces for new audiences.
The users of this library may access the library virtually on eLibraryUSA, which contains more than 20 databases of books, magazines, and documents. All of the services are free.
During his interview/intervention, Ambassador Chapman announced that the government of the United States would finance the construction of an additional space for the Center.
“Next time we will inaugurate an auditorium for talks, concerts, and more acts; without a doubt, a new space in which to share with Ecuadorian citizens,” said Ambassador Chapman.
The ambassador and the Consulate-General of the United States in Guayaquil are currently coordinating academic and cultural activities in five American spaces in Ecuador. More information.
