Mike Kelly talked about a first edition copy of about The Authentic Life of Billy the Kid, which is one of the rarest items of Western Americana. The first printing was in 1882. The University has 1 of 6 known original copies of the book written and signed by author Pat Garrett. It was the 3 millionth volume the library received.

C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2013 LCV Cities Tour” in Albuquerque, New Mexico to feature the history and literary life of the community. Working with the Comcast Cable local affiliate, they visited literary and historic sites where local historians, authors, and civic leaders were interviewed. close
