A friend of mine was a Public School Librarian .She was always angry because she was only allowed to buy books that had heavy duty bindings at supper inflated prices . She was precluded from buying discounted books from Amazon or whoever. I don`t know the rules of this librarian are but I wonder how much money is wasted on only buying certain grades of books? Also many people don`t read books from the library any more as they are using other sources now.

From the looks of the traffic in and out of the Library, people are still reading books, New Mexico newspapers, and research material. Books from the APL vary from paperback to leather bound, Spanish and German books and magazines. There are also databases with world news, audiobooks, a children's library and more. Magazine collection of over 275 titles. Local newspaper on microfilm back to 1899, Southwest Research Collection, DVDs, CD Roms, Music CDs and a printer available for customer use.

I am sure you are right ,I was just wondering who and how they purchase items, and if they get the same prices I can. I really don`t know, and workers rarely speak out about the process and if it could be improved or not. We don`t even how many people still use the library. In my home town there are two locations one is busy all the time the other has a handful of people who fall asleep at their desks. Every time the city talks about closing the lesser used one people complain.
