Library as a Starting Point to Revitalize Tz'utujil Language

The Library Rija'tzuul Na'ooj in San Juan la Laguna, Guatemala has been promoting activities that encourage the use of the Tz'utujil language by the local community. The library's director Israel Quic has built upon these activities, and added a complementary focus on the web, through blogs and social media in order to encourage more speakers of this Mayan language to revitalize its written use.
