Since the American Library Association's declaration of sustainability as a core value of librarianship in 2019, it is unclear to what extent librarians have embraced and integrated sustainability into their understanding of the profession. This article attempts to explore how library leaders, specifically a small set of participant library deans and directors in New Mexico, define and apply sustainability in their libraries. The responding library deans and directors in New Mexico are in different places on their journeys to understand how sustainability and libraries connect, but share some essential core values defining sustainability.
