Volunteers Needed, Donations Accepted!

As a Nonprofit 501c3, VGPL is an independent library with 40+ volunteers contributing 5,000+ hours annually in support of circulation, cataloging, inventory management, fundraisers, and various patron programs for all ages. Volunteers are always needed! And while approximately 40% of the library's facility and financial support is provided by Santa Fe County, the New Mexico State Library Association, and grants, the remaining 60% of our annual operating budget depends upon the community's generous donations through our Annual Appeals, legacy gifts, contributions to our Invested Funds, various fundraisers, book and audio/visual collection donations. Your donations support daily operations, library programs, collections, and special events and ensure our future. For more information on how you can make a difference, please visit our "Support Us" page, or donate financially one time or monthly through PayPal using the following links.
