Eryka MacKenzie
President, APLF Board of Directors

After 10+ years of servant leadership, Julia Clarke has moved into the President Emeritus role at the Albuquerque Public Library Foundation. The Foundation and the library system can’t thank her enough for her leadership and knowledge. Luckily, she will be continue to be a part of the Foundation in a more supportive role.

Thank you, Julia, for all you have done and all you continue to do for the support of libraries.

I, Eryka MacKenzie, as the incoming President would like to introduce myself and let you know that I am here to serve both the Foundation and the libraries. You can learn more about why I believe in supporting libraries. I am looking forward to an exciting 2024. We are planning multiple opportunities to engage with the community, improve our technology, and, of course, support the libraries in all ways possible. It should be an exciting year.

One new initiative we began in 2023 is the creation of videos to engage with library supporters on social media. If you aren’t yet following us on your social media platforms, be sure to follow us on both Facebook and Instagram. For extra enticement, here is a short video that we had lots of fun creating.

Thank you for all you do to support the Albuquerque and Bernalillo County Libraries. We couldn’t do the work without you.

Community Giving. Community Strong.
