As election season heats up, don’t forget to SUBMIT A SHELFIE, and show support for New Mexico Libraries this election season.
Bonds for Libraries welcomes all bibliophiles to SUBMIT A SHELFIE, and show support for New Mexico Libraries this election season.
This November, New Mexico voters will decide on General Obligation bonds. Bond Issue B provides sorely needed supplemental funds to public, school, academic, and tribal libraries across the state. Resources ranging from desktop computers for schoolwork and job applications, to novels promoting literacy and learning for all ages are purchased with these funds.
Please help us in our effort to advocate for library funding in New Mexico by sending us photos, selfies, or otherwise, posed with a library card or favorite book. Photos will be featured on our website and social media.
How do I submit a selfie?
Projected 2014 GO Bond “B” allocations are now available for academic, public, school, and tribal libraries. Find them here.
