Is there a library in the area with English language books? Or a community center for expats?

No. Personally I prefer to learn Spanish and blend in with the locals even though I still look like the descendent of a genocidal European. :devil:

There's a decent collection of used books in English at Joe's place, aka Café Marina at Casa Marina next to the Cancha Municipal. Good restaurant, too.

Zihua has a public library on Cuahtemoc that actually has quite a few books in English -- many donated by Joe's restaurant (Casa Marina) last fall. You are welcome to read them there but in order to take them home, you'd need to show a residency VISA.

I have managed to accumalate more than 1,000 non=fiction books, perhaps 100 about Latina America. The rest are about exploration/travel, biography, history, gastronomía, wine, comparitive religion, and lots of other stuff.

I am prepared to loan them to snow-birds and year-round residents. But, not to short-term tourists who are less likely to return them. I want them back.

Email me if you are seduced by this opportinuty.

Abrazos!
