Thank you for considering volunteering your time and labor to promote Library services in Albuquerque. The Public Library Albuquerque and Bernalillo County Library has 18 (soon to be 19) locations throughout the Albuquerque area. Much of the Library’s work is routine, or requires extensive training.
