Karla Patricia Ruiz Macfarland, Tijuana's Municipal President, began the remodeling and renovation of the Benito Juárez García Municipal Public Library today, Tuesday. In addition to this she celebrated that the structure where the library is located has been kept in the same conditions since its inauguration on October 20, 1982.

"This is an example of how things that are done in unity can be achieved," said the mayor in her message, noting that the day after taking office she began working in coordination with all the librarians so that the space could be preserved.


Ruiz Macfarland praised the vocation of service and the commitment that the librarians have put in the performance of their duties to change the lives of children, students, people with disabilities, parents, who came to the libraries and found in them a safe place to read, study, research and learn.

Hence, emphasized the mayor, the importance of Tijuana, as a border city, with a high rate of growth and opportunities, to have worthy libraries, because "we have worthy people, worthy books, but not an infrastructure and installation as it deserves. For this reason, he acknowledged the work of the librarians to gather the documentation that allowed the library to remain in the same place, and thanked the support of the State Governor, Jaime Bonilla Valdez, as well as the Secretary of Culture, Pedro Ochoa Palacio, for allocating resources for the remodeling that will dignify its facilities.


On behalf of the library directors, Guillermo Ríos, congratulated Ruiz Macfarland because it is thanks to her perseverance and interest that today the Benito Juárez Municipal Public Library begins a new story with its renovation and remodeling on the verge of its 40th anniversary.

Finally, in the voice of each of the 15 municipal librarians, they read the recognition they gave to the first woman municipal president of Tijuana, for her constant struggle to turn culture into the fundamental axis that restructures an entire society, for raising her voice and joining many others who also believe that libraries are one of the most important needs to form citizens, and for her commitment to guarantee art and culture in her government.
