Library

Our main objective is to share the Peruvian culture; therefore we have created a representative collection of our rich and ample Peruvian literature. We have included other books that are not related to the Peruvian culture, but which have been kindly donated by our members and community at large.

To accomplish our objective, the donation of books by Peruvian authors, or related to Peru, is necessary.  To this end, we kindly ask you to help us with a donation, so we can build the first Peruvian Library in Southern California.

We all remember our acclaimed writers, such as Garcilaso de la Vega, Ricardo Palma, Ciro Alegría, César Vallejo, José María Eguren, José María Arguedas, Flora Tristán, Mario Vargas Llosa, Alfredo Bryce Echenique, among others, and their famous traditions, seáis, poetry and novels, which filled the hours in some moment of our lives.  Well, now is the time to find them and join them together in a special place in the House of Peru.
