Preserve our Local History

 

Preserve our Local History

 

-Thanks to a grant from New Mexico State Archives, the library is in the process of digitizing some historic spiritual journals and family photos from Abiquiu Pueblo, to ensure the preservation of our history for future generations. If any Abiquenos have family photos,including wedding photos, family celebrations, fiestas, people working in their gardens or riding on horseback or any other images that show life in the village from an earlier period, we would like to help preserve your family’s history. The donor would keep all the original photos; the library would simply make digital copies and add the images to our digital archive. You could help by identifying the people in the pictures or adding stories. Call the library to arrange an appointment with one of the team of volunteers working on creating this archival record of Abiquiu’s history.

 

Summer Youth Program

-Pueblo de Abiquiu Library is already making plans for our summer reading / art/ gardening program for students on the theme of Dig into Reading.

The schedule will be announced next month.
