Hekab Be is in urgent need of donations to help us keep the library open through the end of the year. HB operates on a shoestring budget of ~$1500 US a month and runs all its programs with just 3 staff members! We are dedicated to supporting the career and educational growth of local Akumal residents, who have a unique opportunity to help others by working at HB.
Our goal is to raise $3000 to keep us open into January. A portion of these funds will also be used for the library’s annual Christmas party.

Change in library schedule
Now that we’ve switched our clocks back, the library will be closing earlier so staff and kids are not returning home in the dark.
Our hours are:
Monday-Friday 9:30 am-5:30 pm (closed 1-2:30 for lunch)
Library opens at 11:45 on Wednesday morning (staff read at Akumal schools before that)
Saturday 9:30 am-1 pm
