How you can help the Placitas Community Library

Unlike most public libraries, the Placitas Community Library is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that depends on private donations and a full staff of volunteers.

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 the library.

Library expenses are funded by your donations. Expenses include operating expenses that keep the library building open and the numerous programs for children and adults, such as Children’s Story Hours and author discussions. Thank you!
