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

July 1, 2020

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.

Today, Wednesday, July 1st, Albuquerque City Councilor Lan Sena reads When Charlie Met Emma by Amy Webb, which is a favorite book of Councilor Sena’s niece and nephew. 

The reading broadcasts occur every Wednesday and Friday until the State Health Order is lifted and possibly continue throughout the year on the Lavender Libros YouTube Channel.

Beatriz Valencia, ABC Community School Coordinator, Rodney Prunty, President/CEO United Way of Central, and Professor Marjori Krebbs, UNM Department of Teacher Education, Educational Leadership & Policy as well as other guest readers present special readings on upcoming Wednesdays and Fridays throughout the summer.  Every Wednesday and Friday we will provide this at home opportunity to learn and lead with Lavender Libros.
