The Santa Fe Library Board is recommending naming the library for Michael J. Maloof. From the Santa Fe New Mexican:
The City Council must still ratify the reccommendation at which time the Maloof family will donate to the city $1 million.
Because that's how much it costs to name a library these days.
Some of the article's comments reflect confusion about Michael J. Maloof. He had a liquor business in Farmington and isn't even mentioned in the multiple Maloof Wiki entries about his wanna-be flashy nephews.
