The Farmington Public Library at the Bayless Power Library in partnership with the Boys & Girls Club of Farmington with the educational component that aims to ensure that all Club members graduate from high school on time and are ready for a post-secondary education and a 21st-century career.
Services are exclusive for club members. Approximately 2,000 books are available for checkout with a Farmington Public Library card. The library has 10 computers available to club members. These computers are used for technology classes, Live Homework Help online database with a live tutor, online research, internet usage and provide a variety of educational games. The library also serves as a classroom for the day classes held at the club. During the summer, all club members are encouraged to read and participate in the summer reading program sponsored by the New Mexico State Library and the Farmington Public Library Foundation.
Additional educational programs are offered to help build reading proficiency and reduce "summer set-back." Standards are set high, and peer support among members creates an atmosphere focused on excelling. Our Kids Read is the first thing you see when you enter the Boys & Girls Club of Farmington.
Members are able to earn "Power Hour Points" for activities they perform and complete in the library. Members keep track of points in assigned portfolios, in which they may keep all their completed assignments, writing, artwork, etc. At the end of each month all Power Hour Points are totaled. The members with the highest total from each age group receive a prize. The member with the most Power Points at the end of the school year receives special recognition and an award from the Power Library and Farmington Boys and Girls Club. Parents and teachers are encouraged to visit the Power Library and club.
