     In an effort to help increase Bibloteca Publica's library membership, here's the deal! Perhaps your VIP Club Card has expired and beyond the club's grandfather offer to members, or you might want to purchase one for someone else as a gift. Go to Biblioteca during the month of August, buy a VIP Club Card there and THERE ONLY, for $500 pesos, now the standard price and the VIP Club will pay for your new library card which is an 80 peso value. Sorry for members who are grandfathered in at the past $400 peso dues we can not offer the deal.

    Sad to say, both Market Bistro and Don Quijote have closed their doors, but don't despair, both will be reopening soon and the new owners are hip to the Club and both should be up and running within a month. Your Club desires to graciously thank Martha of Don Quijote for her support and wish her well. As for Daniel and Genevieve, old old friends and charter members of the VIP Club with Market Bistro and Petite we wish them the absolute best in future endeavors knowing how great they have been to the VIP Club and its membership.
