Tribal Libraries Fundraiser

The 2nd Annual Tribal Libraries Fundraiser Dinner and Auction will be held on Saturday, October 10th, 2009 at Route 66 Casino. Tribal librarians in NM have dedicated themselves to continuously provide literacy, technology and information resources in their communities. To provide these much needed resources libraries need additional funding to continue and expand their services at each tribal library.

We are looking for Art Donations from the community for the auction. If you are interested in donating to this cause please contact Janice Kowemy at (505) 552-6280 or email: Donations will be tax-deductible.

On behalf of New Mexico Tribal Libraries, thank you for your support!
