April and Upcoming Events

Read-a-thon/Draw-a-thon: Thank you to the twenty readers and twenty sponsors who helped made our March 16th Read-a-thon a success. We have posted the names of donors and supporters on the door near the librarian’s desk. We read over half of Frances Leon Quintana’s Los Pobladores, with pauses for discussion and comments about this history that directly relates to Abiquiu Pueblo, land use, and land appropriation. All afternoon, a full table of adult and children artists added their images to our annual Draw-a-thon book. Stop by the library and browse through the hand-sewn Draw-a-thon books from previous Read-a-thons. Special thanks to Isabel Lopez for her skillful recruiting of readers.

Abiquiu Walking Tours: It’s that time again. Tours start annually after the Spring Equinox and are normally scheduled on Saturdays or Sundays through Thanksgiving. Call the Library to arrange for a tour with a group of your friends conducted by trained Abiqueno docents and learn about the longer history of the village. Tours are $30 per person and help fund the library programming.

Teenage History Explorers: Find out how to participate in a June archaeological dig exploring what lies beneath the old well in the library’s plazuela. Call @ 685-4884 or visit the library to learn more.

2014 Summer Reading Program: In the beginning of June we will be having the summer reading program for children and teens. FIZZ BOOM READ isthe theme for the children and the theme for the teens is SPARK A REACTION. The library will be sign up for both programs in May.

And Now Miguel: The library has finally obtained a copy of the historic movie filmed partially in Abiquiu Pueblo and will be announcing a screening shortly. If you want o be on our regular library email list, please stop by and sign up for updates of our events

Magazines in the Library:We will be changing our Magazines soon and would like everyone’s input in what they would like to see in the library. Please come in or call to add your choice when we order.

National Library Week: Support your local library on National Library Week which is the week of April 13 – 19, 2014. The different ways you can support your library is by volunteer some time, check out books, getting a library card, and showing your children how important libraries are and how they operate.
