After a successful ceremony celebrating the Questa Public Library’s new addition last June, staff and supporters are setting their sights on another landmark—literally. Inspired by an initial donation from a long-time supporter who wished to build a patio dedicated to his late wife, another patron made a pledge to start a garden to adjoin the patio. The idea of a fully designed outdoor area was born. This outdoor space will allow additional room for library programs and community gatherings.
The landscape plan was created by Questeño Jimmy Cisneros of Gecko Landscaping and is shown above. Depending on weather, construction is projected to begin late fall or early spring. The initial donations for both of these projects are not sufficient to complete them, so additional funding will be needed.
Interested in donating? Contact Library Director Sharon Nicholson at (575) 586-2023. Donations made through the Friends of the Questa Public Library, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, are tax-deductible.
