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.

Adjacent to our hotel, the Sol Parque San Antonio, we find this wonderful library. It's run by volunteers providing an English library service, both for residents and tourists. Great selection of books, DVD's jigsaws etc.. can get temporary membership if you're on holiday.

This is a brilliant library. Books, videos,C.D.s It is all run by volunteers who either live locally or visit at certain times of the year. The gardens are absolutely fabulous. A must, well worth the effort of the walk up from Puerto centre.
