About Us

The New Mexico Library Foundation is a New Mexico 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation.  NMLF supports libraries in New Mexico by allocating funds to libraries of all types and to non-profit organizations that directly benefit libraries. Past projects have supported ideas such as book fairs, summer reading activities, and bilingual projects.

Our Mission:
The New Mexico Library Foundation will support identified needs of New Mexico libraries. We will do this by providing grants to libraries to build and maintain their collections, update information access technology and enhance library programs.
