El Rito's public library is a non-profit 501 (c) 3. We serve to enlighten, empower and bring enjoyment to our community. Our individual donors, our much appreciated grants, and the hard work of our volunteers keep us operating.
Thanks, Library Supporters!
With your help our pancake breakfast and prize drawing on May 27 was a big success. It's not often we find our parking lot full of cars
and 80 enthusiastic people at the library!
We're so grateful to all our local and far-afield donors. Our library came very close to reaching the $6,000 goal for this campaign - some $5,600 in total from our website PayPal donate button, checks, and cash.
First Prize: Altar de Fe created by El Rito artist Nicholas Herrera was won by Matt Mattai who lives in Maryland. Our own Michael Maddox won the Skull at Midnight platinum photo by David Michael Kennedy. Third Prize of a 2 night stay at OraLynn Benson's Abiquiu Retreat On The River was won by Carol Bondy from Abiquiu. Fourth prize of a Handmade Quilt was won by Pete and Grace Archuleta of El Rito. (3rd and 4th prizes were redrawn after the winners donated them back to the library).
