Let's Talk Rural Libraries

Feb 20, 2019


Let’s Talk New Mexico 2/21 8a: Rural libraries reach around 500,000 New Mexicans in rural towns and pueblos and provide a range of services including tutoring, healthcare, business incubation, and voter registration. Lawmakers are considering a bill this session that would create a $50 million endowment fund to support the state’s 50 rural libraries. What could this financial support mean not only for rural communities but for the state as a whole? Are you a supporter of your local rural library? What would library support mean to your community?
