Summer Reading Program

Registration for the summer reading program will begin on Tuesday, May 30 at 10 a.m.

Wonder on Wheels on the east side of the Library on May 30 from noon to 3:00 p.m. 

New Mexico Arts (NMA) and Wonders on Wheels Mobile Museum (WoW) are working together to bring “WoW, Poetry!”  Poet Laureate, Lauren Camp and NMA Executive Director, Michelle Laflamme-Childs will be participating in WoW events this summer to engage youth and other community members in two special poetry projects. Lauren will talk about ekphrastic poems, a special kind of poem written about art, and will work with WoW visitors to write poems using the Gustav Baumann prints on display in Mobile Museum as inspiration. In addition, Lauren and Michelle will be collecting lines of poetry written by WoW visitors to a specific prompt to create crowdsourced poems specific to each community. The final poems will be printed by the NM History Museum’s Palace Press with prints gifted back to each community, and when the project is complete, all the final poems will be displayed in a public exhibition.
