1973: Clovis-Carver Public Library officials were notified they'd been allocated $7,398 by the New Mexico Library Commission.

Clovis Librarian Ruth Wuori said she'd been hoping for $7,000 and considered the extra $398 "generous" and a surprise, the Clovis News-Journal reported.

Wuori said the money would be used to augment the business library, toy lending library and tape and record collection, and to expand the reference section.
