Albuquerque Special Collections Library Reopens After Restoration Project
From the Albuquerque Journal:
The 1925 Pueblo/Spanish Revival-style building housing the Special Collections Library of the Albuquerque/Bernalillo County Libraries reopened Tuesday after a $1.2 million restoration project, the city of Albuquerque said in a news release.
“Reading is fundamental to a functioning society,” said Mayor Richard J. Berry, who took part in a ribbon-cutting ceremony Tuesday. “While the Internet is great, it’s not a replacement for a library and I’m delighted to have the opportunity to be part of helping this great Albuquerque landmark book repository maintain its place in our shared history.”
The building is a registered Albuquerque landmark in the historic Huning-Highland neighborhood and houses research collections on New Mexico history and culture, the release said.
