Legislation Proposes Support Of Rural Libraries
El Rito Library is urging patrons of rural libraries to support the Rural Library Endowment Bill.
Forty rural libraries throughout New Mexico rely upon community members or grant funds to keep their doors open. This year the New Mexico Rural Library Initiative is working to get a bill to the floor of the New Mexico State Senate to include rural libraries in their permanent budgets.
El Rito Library is urging patrons to contact Gov. Lujan-Grisham’s office via email or phone to let her know what supporting the library means to the community and to mention some of the amazing programs and events held and services provided by all of New Mexico’s rural libraries.
