Route 66 themed Little Lending library installed at NMPED to celebrate our Year of Literacy!
The New Mexico Public Education Department’s new Little Lending Library is now open! Secretary Kurt Steinhaus christened the library in May, along with the library’s talented design and construction team made up of students from the Media Arts Collaborative Charter School in Albuquerque. The little lending library is located on the east side of the PED building at 300 Don Gaspar in Santa Fe. Take a look, grab a book, leave a book!
Every Monday at 8 a.m., a story will be released and read aloud by the NMPED’s Literacy & Humanities Bureau Director Severo Martinez. Make sure you like and subscribe to Storytime with Severo.
