Impact Statement

Since 1992, NMLF has helped New Mexico libraries foster lifelong learning and ensure relevance to the communities they serve.

Save the Date!

NMLF’s second “Run/Walk for New Mexico Libraries” event was held on April 27th, 2024.  (Our first was a “Sweetheart Run” held in February of 2023.). We had such a good time we’ve already started planning for 2025!  So Save the Date for April 12th, 2025, the Saturday of National Library Week.

 This year our event took place at seven sites throughout the state:  Farmington, Las Vegas, Santa Fe, Albuquerque, Ruidoso, Carlsbad, and Sunland Park.  Several walkers chose to participate “on their own.” We added t-shirts this year and they were very popular.

 Next year we’d like to expand to even more sites in other parts of New Mexico.  If you’d like to help with a run/walk in your community, let us know. ( It’s a noncompetitive event, easy to put on, and the cause couldn’t be better:  raising money for grants for New Mexico libraries and librarians.

Thank you donors and supporters!

We would like to take a moment to say thank you to our donors and supporters of the New Mexico Library Foundation.

Without your support, we would not be able to provide supplemental funding to libraries who are seeking to improve their library collections and/or enhance library programs for the population they serve.
