The 2nd Annual Tribal Libraries Fundraiser Silent/Live Auction and Dinner will be held on Saturday, October 10th, 2009 at Route 66 Casino.  Native American Art from Acoma, Isleta, Jemez, Laguna, Pojoaque, San Ildefonso, and other tribes.  Tickets are $75 each or $500 (Table of 8).


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: jkowemy@lagunatribe.org.  Donations will be tax-deductible.


Tickets are available through Maureen Wacondo, (575) 834-9171 or email: mwacondo@yahoo.com.


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