City Council President Cynthia D. Borrego started the Lavender Libros Book Reading Project to demonstrate care and awareness to children in New Mexico. Government administrators and community leaders read a children’s book available on the Lavender Libros YouTube channel.
As Councilor Borrego prepares to step down, she will pass the torch from Lavender Libros to Global Give A Book, a local nonprofit that supports children’s literacy.
âIt was a real pleasure to create a program during the pandemic that stimulates children to read and grow. Lavender Libros has helped parents over the past year and a half by providing them with a home learning tool, âsaid Board Chair Cynthia D. Borrego. âAll of the program’s readers, from various backgrounds, have devoted their precious time to creatively presenting and guiding young people in reading through the vehicle of Lavender Libros. I am honored by the local leaders who have read Lavender Libros and are committed to supporting the program. I am grateful to have transferred Lavender Libros to Global Give a Book, a non-profit organization that strongly supports children’s literacy in Albuquerque through the distribution of award-winning children’s books and other elements of literacy programs. in schools and extracurricular activity centers. I am happy that the program continues to be a source of learning for our children in the future.

âGlobal Give A Book is honored to be entrusted with the pursuit of Lavender Libros and looks forward to taking it to new heights,â said Sylvia Maser, Founder / CEO of Global Give A Book. âThis platform brings joy, improved child literacy and early childhood development to our community.
