Our Public Library Needs Your Help

County Bonds

The Bernalillo County Commission is currently evaluating requests for capital improvement funds. The Albuquerque/Bernalillo County Library system is requesting $2,000,000 for library materials.

How You Can Help

         ATTEND A PUBLIC MEETING - Public meetings will be held in March and April 2014. Please consider attending a meeting and showing your support for Library funding. The public meeting schedule is available at http://www.bernco.gov/news/199666/.

         CONTACT YOUR COUNTY COMMISSIONER - Another way to help the Library is to contact your county commissioner in March or April. Let them know what the library means to you and that you appreciate their support for public library resources and services. Contact information for Commissioner is available at http://www.bernco.gov/county-commissioners/ .

         VOTE – County Bonds, including funding for the Library, will be up for voter approval in the November general election.

City Funding

The city funding cycle will begin in the fall of 2014. Check here for information about how you can help later this year.

State Funding

This year’s state bond proposals include funding for ABC Library projects and materials. Governor Martinez is considering the proposal. Please consider contacting her office at http://www.governor.state.nm.us/Contact_the_Governor.aspx to indicate your support for library funding.

Thank you for supporting our libraries!
