CULTURAL ACTIVITIES

There's always something going on at the Rincón Cultural Center! We offer concerts, readings, classes (English, Spanish, Italian and French...), workshops (writing, photography, painting, crafts...), conferences (on cultural, spiritual, environmental, social themes..), book presentations, film and documentary screenings, and organize rotating exhibitions. Once a month our bookstore takes part in the Rincón's Farmers Market. Many of our activities are bilingual (if they're listed on our Facebook page in English it's usually that they are).


THE BOOKSTORE
As a nonprofit cultural initiative created to serve the community we aim to help promote reading and writing in our community and Western Puerto Rico as a whole through book sales and cultural events. El Kiosco de Libros is a general interest bookstore that stocks used and new books and magazines in Spanish, English and French. Come and check out our special dollar baskets for great deals.

We also have a selection of English books at Tres Puertas Gallery & Gift Shop, 21 calle Muñoz Rivera, just south of Rincón’s plaza (open Mon-Sat 10-5pm, Sun 1-6pm). Information: Elke Fontillo, 787-672-5284.
