ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – An Albuquerque middle school just got some big help from a bestselling author.

James Patterson gave Truman Middle School a $6,800 grant to support its library.

The school plans to use that money to add 40 audio books along with hardcover versions to its collection.

Truman was selected among thousands of applications.

Collet Park Elementary and Van Buren middle school also received the grant.

Since the program’s launch in 2015, Patterson has donated $3.5 million to school libraries nationwide. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
