March 10, 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, Senior Affairs Director Anna Sanchez and AmeriCorps Seniors, Foster Grandparent Program Volunteer, Bei Ruetten read The Story of Ferdinand by Munro Leaf. 

AmeriCorps Week is the second week of March to thank our AmeriCorps members and AmeriCorps Seniors volunteers for all the ways they continue to stand up and show up in their communities and for their neighbors. Together, they respond to disasters, support COVID-relief efforts, serve as mentors, help conserve the environment, and so much more, while working alongside more than 2,000 nonprofit, religious and tribal organizations and local and state government offices—all for the greater good. 

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.
