Help Us Fund Literacy Opportunities For Everyone!

To accomplish this mission, the Association will raise funds to promote library and literacy events such as author presentations and readings, children’s programs, and adult literacy initiatives.  The Association will also raise funds that will be granted to the library to enhance its collection with emphasis on the Southwest history and culture.  The Association will also partner with Friends of the Library groups to fund and promote reading and other special projects such as summer reading camp for specific branches.  The Association will also raise funds to provide travel and professional development for library staff.  A great part of the Association’s fundraising efforts will go towards creating scholarships for El Paso students who want to pursue a career in the library and information scene.
