Friends of the Library is a non-profit 501(c)3 volunteer organization that funds all adult, youth and children’s programs, such as the summer reading and special events, at the Rio Rancho NM libraries. The Friends raise money through the sale of community-donated books, recent magazines, CDs and DVDs.

Monthly sales are the second Saturday of each month from 10 am to 2 pm at the Loma Colorado library auditorium. In addition, the Friends’ Bookstore in the Loma Colorado library is staffed Monday to Thursday from 10 am to 6 pm and on Friday and Saturday to 5 pm. The Friends’ Shop at the Esther Bone library is available when the library is open.
