Author Call — Be our blogger! 

authorcallWe know Placitas is full of talented writers, we just need to find the one who wants to write the library blog. Our blogger would work with a great group of volunteers in a thriving community hub. We have new books and new programs all the time, with lots of opportunity for intriguing and stimulating experiences that make great writing material. Call Marian if you’re interested: 867-3355.
