What do public libraries and literacy mean to you?
Remember the pride you felt when you received your first library card, the delight your child took participating in Baby Bumblebees, and/or the pleasure of preparing or receiving a Books for Babies packet? Or, have you, a friend, or a loved one enjoyed the summer reading program incentives for children and adults, or musical entertainment, or guest speakers, …? Whatever the program, Friends of the Library of Rio Rancho has likely provided the funding. (Contrary to public perception, the City of Rio Rancho does not fund library programs, due to budget constraints.)
How do we do it? Thousands of volunteer hours, great community support, fabulous members, and greatly appreciated donations of new and gently used books.
Why do we do it? Because we’re passionate about literacy and our community.
Come enjoy a variety of volunteer opportunities, and likely gain a number of new friends, too!
