Lavender Libros is a Children’s Book Reading Program by local government and community members.

March 31, 2021

City Council President Cynthia D. Borrego initiated the Lavender Libros book reading project to demonstrate care and outreach to New Mexico’s children. Government administrators and community leaders alike read a children’s book available on the Lavender Libros YouTube Channel.

Today, Director Carolyn Ortega of the City of Albuquerque Animal Welfare Department (AWD), will read one of her favorite children’s pet books as kittens listen to her read as they play. The book is titled A Home for Nathan by Claudia M. Roll. The author of the book was a co-worker from AWD and she adopted Nate the cat from our shelter. 

The reading broadcasts will occur every Wednesday until the State Health Order is lifted on the Lavender Libros YouTube Channel.

Special readings will continue throughout the year. Every Wednesday provides this at home opportunity to learn and lead with Lavender Libros.
