Every year we donate all the entries in the Book Awards to libraries and literacy programs in NM and AZ. This year we focussed on two libraries due to recent events that have impacted the accessibility to books by the public. The North Valley Public Library in Albuquerque suffered a huge fire a couple of months ago and it damaged most of the books in the building. We have made a huge donation to them in an effort to get books back into the hands of its public. The second library is in Alamogordo, where the city fathers decided to not fund any more book acquisitions this year. So we are making a big donation there as well. We did also make significant donation of books to the public libraries in Santa Fe (all three branches), Albuquerque Main branch, Rio Rancho, Aztec, Los Lunas, Silver City, and the Historical Society of New Mexico.
