Friends of Libraries and Literacy
The Friends of Libraries and Literacy provides support to libraries and literacy initiatives through sales of community-donated books and media in the Friends Shop located on the library’s upper level. The Friends have funded our programs since 2021, including our Summer Reading Program, ongoing Bernalillo History Series, music literacy events, and more. We are proud to have the Friends as vibrant partner in sharing the joy of reading with the Bernalillo community!
