Local Projects - Librarians, library staff and supporters are encouraged to develop local projects. Encourage your library board members and Friends groups to communicate their support for Bond 2 by writing letters and newspaper opinion columns and posting to social media.
Join the SIG, or a Subcommittee – The Bonds for Libraries SIG welcomes new members. You become a SIG member by joining NMLA and checking the box requesting to affiliate with the BfLSIG.If you are a BfLSIG member you will be invited to attend general meetings, create methods of informational outreach, and propose creative new ways the BfLSIG may expand its communications to local communities. This could provide a great professional development opportunity for graduate students and new professionals.
Creative Local Marketing – Assist the SIG by educating your library patrons in creative ways. New Mexico libraries have deployed book displays, identified bond-funded computers and other technology, and used book plates to bring attention to the resources made available through Bond 2.
Share your Library Photos – Photos of your libraries, resources, services, staff and patrons are always welcome. They help the SIG promote the Bond via the website, and on social media. If you send photos to email@example.com we will post them on our Bonds for Libraries website.
If we all work together we will have another successful Library GO Bond 2 election.
Please remember, absentee voting ballots will be mailed out approximately a month before the election. Early voting begins approximately three weeks before the election. We will post actual dates when they are available.
