Alamosa--Robert L. Murphy Library History

Alamosa - Robert L. Murphy Library

The City of Albuquerque officially named the Alamosa - Robert L. Murphy Library after community leader Robert L. Murphy in October 2001.

Robert L. Murphy moved to Albuquerque in 1954 and was stationed at Kirtland AFB where he served as a military policeman. In 1962 he left the Air Force and joined the Albuquerque Fire Department and served for 27 years. During his lifetime he was very active with the Boy Scouts of America, his local church Santuario de San Martin, Alamosa Elementary School, and was a founding member of the Alamosa Neighborhood Association. Mr. Murphy brought many neighborhood treasures to the Alamosa community including the construction of the Santuario de San Martin Church, the implementation of the Alamosa Multi-Service Center and the endless devotion he provided to the Alamosa Elementary School. He was a unique individual who gave of himself to his community so others may benefit and prosper from his generous efforts, it is fitting that his life of community-oriented commitment be honored at a City of Albuquerque facility.
