ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A University of New Mexico center is donating books to underfunded public and tribal libraries across the state.

The school’s Center for Regional Studies says it is providing more than $34,000 to purchase books published by UNM Press for distribution to 65 libraries.

Officials say the project promotes the interests of CRS and UNM Press in improving literacy across the state and providing learning opportunities for New Mexico residents.

Donated UNM Press books include titles about New Mexico history, culture, biographies, fiction, natural history, and books for children and young adults.
