In 2009, voters approved a City GO Bond to fund library materials for the International District, thanks to a campaign spearheaded by Rey Garduño, Albuquerque's City Councilor for District 6. In February, Albuquerque/Bernalillo County Libraries unveiled the new collection of materials printed in several international languages.
ABC Libraries is proud to launch this fabulous new collection, featuring materials for both adults and children, written in Spanish, French, Arabic, Vietnamese and Mandarin Chinese languages. The collection was unveiled at San Pedro Library, but they will float to other branches. If you don't see the materials at your branch, check the catalog & place holds! Look for the blue globe on the spine.
