City Councilor 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.  Melissa Sanchez, Executive Director of ABQ Westside Chamber of Commerce helped organize the project.
