William Mulloy Library (Biblioteca Mulloy) 

The Wiiliam Mulloy Library (Biblioteca William Mulloy) is located at the Museo Antropológico P. Sebastián Englert (MAPSE) on the island. The library was named in honor of the late Dr. William Mulloy, an anthropologist whose research and rebuilding projects on the island contributed significantly to knowledge of the island’s prehistory. Mulloy’s collection of books, papers, maps, fieldnotes and photographic materials forms the core of this scientific research museum, augmented by acquisitions and gifts. The Easter Island Foundation was instrumental in the creation of the library and continues to donate books and other materials. Link to William Mulloy Library (Biblioteca Mulloy)

Terevaka.net Archaeological Outreach Program 

The TAO Program was created to help young Rapanui islanders learn ways of preserving the past while preparing them for the future. It has the following goals: to utilize archaeology as a foundation for education and opportunity within Rapa Nui’s island community; to promote awareness and expertise in archeology and cultural conservation; to document, study, and conserve the remarkable treasures of the past that remain on Rapa Nui today.  The EIF is proud to assist this program with their educational mission.  TAO t-shirts are now available for purchase through the EIF; please see the T-shirt page under “Merchandise”.

Biblioteca Rapanui at the Fonck Museum 

The Biblioteca Rapanui in Viña del Mar, Chile, housed the collection of William Mulloy prior to the creation of the Mulloy Library on Easter Island. The collection now housed at the Biblioteca provides a place in mainland Chile where students and researchers can access books and materials related to Easter Island and the Pacific. Ana Betty Haoa Rapahango, of Rapanui ancestry, is the librarian. The EIF has donated many books and other items to the Biblioetca Rapanui. Link to Biblioteca Rapanui 
 
  
Far Horizons Archaeological and Cultural Trips

Their trips explore how people live in the world today, the challenges they face, their traditions, their goals and their political environment.  Far Horizons conducts trips all over the world and they donate a portion of the proceeds from their annual trip to Easter Island to the EIF. Link to Far Horizons Archaeological and Cultural Trips
