Library Board Seeking Name Suggestions...

Library Board Seeking Name Suggestions for Southside Library

The Library Board of the Santa Fe Public Library is seeking suggestions for names for the new Santa Fe Public Library Southside Branch and for designated spaces in the new branch, which is located at 6599 Jaguar Road.

"The Library Board wants to involve the community in the process of suggesting names. The Library Board plans to announce the name at the branch opening in early Spring," Board President Michele Huff stated.

The Library Board created a naming policy in 2005 to guide all decisions for naming opportunities. Considerations for naming the branch include, but are not limited to, members of the community, literary figures, foundations, donors and Library supporters. The building itself may NOT be named for a living person, a corporation or brand name product. The full policy is attached to this e-mail.

The Library Board also notes that there are designated spaces in the Library which may be named for living persons, or other entities such as foundations, service groups, members of the community, corporations or literary figures.

All nominations will be reviewed by the Library Board and recommendations will be submitted to the City Council for approval. The Library Board is a seven-member Board appointed by the Mayor with representatives from Santa Fe and Santa Fe County.

Nominators are required to submit a one page biography or fact sheet with all pertinent information on their nominee to the Library Board, c/o Maria Finley, at the Santa Fe Public Library, 145 Washington Avenue, Santa Fe, NM 87501 by 5 p.m. February 1, 2007. The nominator must include a phone number, address and email address for confirmation or more information. Nominations will not be accepted without the required information.
