Dear Library Supporters,

We are pleased to announce the 3rd annual Spring Library Giving campaign March 17-27. This year’s theme is Spring for the Library - Come grow with us!

APLF is a 501c-3 non-profit organization, run by a volunteer Board of working and retired professionals.

APLF steps in where there is a need and there are no public funds to meet those needs — as we are able. Support from our donors goes to fund new and continuing programs & services; along with facility upgrades and initiatives not covered by our tax dollars.

Books are just the beginning! Come join us.
Donations received by March 27 are eligible to matched by the APLF Board.

Community Giving. Community Strong.

What is Career Online High School (COHS)?

COHS is open to Albuquerque and Bernalillo County residents who are at least 19 years old and have successfully completed 8th grade and wish to earn their high school diploma. Applicants who successfully complete an online self-assessment and prerequisite course, followed by an in-person interview, will be considered for enrollment. Program applicants must have a library card in good standing or be willing to apply for a library card.

How will students be selected for the program?

Enrollment is limited, and demand is high. Currently, six students are receiving full scholarships. The six scholarships covered by the Sandia National Laboratories Educational Success Grant are being matched by the New Mexico State Library, enabling our library system to enroll a total of 12 students at this time.
