The partnership between Bernalillo County, the City of Albuquerque Public Libraries, and Albuquerque Center for Hope and Recovery (ACHR) is a milestone for the extension of services into Southwest Albuquerque.

I am amazed how we are continuing to expand services to different parts of Bernalillo County to ensure everybody has access to services,” said Commissioner Quezada.
