Thank you for helping to pass both the State and the Sandoval County General Obligations Bonds this past November. We rely on those funds to keep the library supplied with new books and dvds, among many other things. But generous as these allocations are, we are not actually in possession of the funds here at PCL. Instead, we process everything through Sandoval County, which means the end of the fiscal year always presents a bit of a challenge.
We expect to have both bond funds available again in early July when we will cheerfully stock up on all sorts of new goodies. But for the next few months, the book-buying budget is tight, and you may find that item you requested is taking longer than usual.
Your donations of clean, current books helps us not only stock our collection but build up trade credit. The always delightful Page One allows us to trade used books in for new ones. (They are now located in the Mountain Run shopping center at Eubank and Juan Tabo. Please go support them.) We also have trade credit at Hastings, so we will get those Academy Award movies in too, just not all at once.
And I know we’ve said this before (such as a couple of months ago when we were without water) but we’ll say it again: Thank You for Your Patience.
