GO Bond B!
You Need Libraries… Libraries Need You!
Date: September 18, 2012
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CONTACT: Kristina Martinez, NMSU Library, (575) 646-3642, [email protected]
The New Mexico State University Library will benefit from passage of a bond issue that will
appear on the ballot in New Mexico’s November General Election.
GO Bond B is one of three bond issues in Senate Bill SB 66, the General Obligation Bond Bill,
signed March 7, 2012 by Governor Susana Martinez.
If passed, GO Bond B will provide $9,700,000 for New Mexico Libraries, $3 million each to
public, academic and school libraries statewide for the purchase of library materials and
$700,000 to tribal libraries for the purchase of library materials and construction.
GO Bonds provide up to 25% of New Mexico academic library materials. Libraries at the
NMSU Las Cruces campus, Alamogordo, Carlsbad, Grants and Dona Ana Community College
will all benefit from this bond. If approved, the $9.7 million bond issue would cost taxpayers
56 cents per $100,000 of their assessed property value and NMSU Libraries would receive the
following estimated amounts:
NMSU Las Cruces Library - $386,090
Doña Ana Community College Library - $83,349
NMSU Alamogordo Library - $26,442
NMSU Carlsbad Library - $13,539
NMSU Grants Library - $10,461
The cumulative total for the NMSU Library system would be $519,881.
“The NMSU Library relies on bond funds in order to maintain its collection. We encourage New
Mexicans to get out and vote on November 6th or to vote early,” said Dr. Elizabeth A. Titus,
Dean of NMSU Library.
Early voting begins October 9th at the Doña Ana County Government Center and at alternate
locations on October 20th.
The statewide Bonds for Libraries Special Interest Group of the New Mexico Library
Association is conducting an informational campaign to assist library supporters in providing
voter information about GO Bond B. For more information, visit the group’s website at
