Zuni Library Mission

The mission of Zuni Elementary Magnet School for Communications and Technology Library is to inspire a passion for knowledge and a love of reading, to teach students to become skilled users of information tools, and to develop life-long learners. 

Zuni Library Goals

  • To promote the very best of children's fiction and nonfiction literature with activities designed to help students enjoy the books even more.
  • To get (or keep) children "hooked on reading!"
  • To teach students how to find information in all formats, including how to perform research using online resources.
  • To help students find materials especially suited to their individual interests and abilities.
  • To support classroom teaching and learning.

Free Birthday Books!

Great news! Every Zuni student will receive a free book to keep for his or her birthday. We have received a generous donation of books from the City of Albuquerque Department of Family and Community Services. We also have books that were purchased from the proceeds of last year's book fair.  Ms. Main will hand out books to classes with birthdays that month, usually the first library day of that month.
