Anyone new to the area will find the Library, its volunteer staff and its members a friendly and welcoming group. In addition to its primary function as a traditional British library, it also acts as an important focal point for the British community living in and around Puerto de la Cruz.
We also have a programme of lively and popular social activities running throughout the year. Anyone contemplating retiring to Tenerife will find the Library, its resources, staff and members a great source of information because most of us have done the same thing ourselves.
