An amazing place to visit
Feb 2020 • Couples
We are staying at hotel parque San Antonio and were amazed to find this library in the grounds of the hotel. I read a lot and don’t want a kindle so have bought lots of books with me. If I’d have known this was here I wouldn’t have bothered to bring any. There are modern books and classics, non fiction, DVD’s jigsaws and much much more. It is absolutely worth a visit if you love books and are anywhere nearby. Looked after by a very cheerful and friendly volunteer staff.

Wide choice of books and DVDs

Don’t bother to pack heavy books, when you can borrow them from this well established and used library, including children’s books. Jigsaws are also available. Situated next to the San Antonio Hotel, we access it via the hotel gardens, it also has its own gardens with seating, when various events take place. You can join as both a resident or visiting holiday maker, a welcoming smile will always great you. Great for a coffee and chat on a Saturday morning.

An amazing location.

The libray is not easy to find by the casual visitor but it is well worth the effort to find it. This is the largest collection of English books outside the UK and we spent hours simply looking at the historical and geographical reference books on Tenerife. There is even a row of books - which survived (the 1909?) eruption in Oratava.

More than a library . Although a wide range of books and films is also a meeting place and informal citizen's advice bureau.

A VERY WELL RUN ESTABLISHMENT
Jan 2018 • Couples
WOW! They have everything here, books, CDs, videos, jigsaws, filmshows, talks, in fact it is very diverse. It is well run by English (mainly ladies), and even if you are just on vacation they will allow you temporary membership so you can borrow all or any of the above items.

We are holidays in Puerto de la Cruz and have joined as temp members. The people could not be friendlier, and the gardens are amazing, wonderful old house with thousands of books to borrow.
Thoroughly recommend a visit.

a nice English gem

It was by accident I came across this English library when I was on holiday in Tenerife. It was near the hotel I stayed in and is a real oasis for someone who can't read Spanish books.

We visit here regularly as we live nearby. It is a friendly place to visit and a opportunity to loan books and DVD's. You can also "take tea" in the lovely garden, or if you prefer a coffee or even a beer! They also have various events throughout the year.

I never used the Library but my wife used it a couple of times and said the staff were very friendly and helpful. It's very cheap too.
