How You Can Help

Unlike most public libraries, PCL is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that depends on private donations to meet operating expenses. While we do receive monies from state and county General Obligations Bonds, these funds are restricted to books, computers and other materials for public use. For a view of our funding sources compared with the average municipal library, please see here.


Volunteers are the heart of the Placitas Community Library.  And volunteering provides you an opportunity to learn new skills, work with interesting people, and give back to your community.  Consider offering some of your time and skill to PCL.
