Summer Reading is a free 8-week program at branches of the Public Library that encourages babies, children, tweens, teens and adults to read (or be read to!) throughout the summer. Reading is important for everyone in the community and a skill that grows with practice throughout a lifetime.
Set your own reading goals, read at your own pace wherever you're most comfortable, and visit the library once each week to collect fun incentive prizes. See our event guide for special events and workshops in our libraries.
"As a young boy and adult, I had a sense of belonging in the library. As I grew older, I wanted to write stories in which I and fellow New Mexicans could see themselves in the landscape of literature." -- Rudolfo Anaya
Our guide for continuing learners, adult learners, and professionals or students in the Albuquerque Bernalillo County community who are just getting started on a path toward digital literacy or want to learn new technical skills.
Literacy is "the ability to understand, evaluate, use, and engage with written text to participate in society, to achieve one's goals, and to develop one's knowledge and potential."
Digital Literacy begins with text and extends to the computers, software, interactive forms, and online platforms prevalent in our communities.
