April News

The Friends of the Santa Fe Public Library will be having their Spring Book Sale on April 1st and 2nd at the Main Library. Saturday April 1 from 10:00AM to 1 PM it will be for members only (memberships available at the door). Saturday afternoon 1PM-4PM and Sunday 1PM-4PM, open to the general public.

(The next sale, the Summer Book Sale will take place June 10-11.)

The Friends of the Library has been offered a great fundraising opportunity from our two local Borders stores. April 8 & 9 are designated as our Borders Benefit Days. 10% of all purchases made with the Benefit Days coupon on those two days will come to the Friends and be directed to the South Side Library Fundraising Campaign. In addition, the coupon guarantees 10% savings on all purchases, so you save and contribute to the Friends at the same time. Don't forget your coupon! You will be able to pick up extra copies for your friends at all three libraries, or print it now.

The Library and the South Side Library Campaign are happy to report that the raising of the last pieces of steel, called the topping out, for Southside Library will happen Monday, April 10, at 3PM. Flags and the traditional green tree will be raised to the top of the building. Yaay. (Rides on the crane will not be offered.)

The La Farge Library will be celebrating "El Dia de los Ninos," Saturday, April 29th, 2:00--2:45PM. This is an annual nationwide celebration of Wise Fool puppet image
children and books. This year in honor of the occasion the Santa Fe Public Library will have the Wise Fool New Mexico theatre group present their program "A Look Inside". The program is a participatory journey through the magical world of puppetry. Details about this program (and other news) are available on the Library's news page.
