Oaxaca Lending Library — Making Connections for Gringos

A year ago my friend Shannon Pixley Sheppard left Mill Valley, California, to settle in Oaxaca.  She took an early retirement from her career as a librarian and decided to make her way south where life is vibrant and a retirement income can stretch considerably.  She volunteers at the Oaxaca Lending Library which is a cultural center for transplanted norteamericanos (canadienses and estadounidenses).  The OLL also provides important educational support for community libraries that are dedicated to local populations.

I want to share this link with you.  Shannon has just written about some upcoming events that showcase the vibrancy of social and cultural life in Oaxaca.  If you are considering a vacation or an extended stay or even contemplating a move to Oaxaca, this is an excellent reference point for you.

Shannon lives perched on a hillside off Calle Crespo where she has annointed her apartment Casita Colibri.  You can read her posts here!
