The Library Advisory Board is established as a liaison between the community and its government for the following purposes:
One goal of the Library Advisory Board is to educate the citizens of Bernalillo County about the needs of the Library and how the Library is supported by the City, County and State.
To help meet that goal they have created the Support ABC Libraries website.
The Library Advisory Board consists of 11 members appointed by the Mayor and City Council, and 4 members who are appointed by the County Commission.
