Available Library Services

The Jemez Springs Public Library is currently closed due to COVID-19 (Coronavirus) restrictions. A reopening date has not yet been determined. Please know that we are working hard to keep online services available to patrons and appreciate your patience during these challenging times.

Please continue to use and hold onto any library materials you have at home

We are currently not able to empty the return box and would rather you continue to enjoy the items. If you choose to share items with friends please quarantine the items before sharing (ie leave them untouched in a bag for at least a week).

Public Wi-Fi will remain on

Wi-Fi (no password) will remain on at the library for patrons to use 24/7 from outside and in the parking lot. Please observe these rules: In order to keep everyone safe and comply with social distancing orders we request that a parent or guardian needs to stay with the children outside the library while they do homework. Also social distancing should be maintained by either having only one family (two people max as per the Governors rules) occupy each picnic table in the back (there are two tables), or a family can work from inside their car in the library parking lot. If the tables and parking lot are full, please come back at another time rather than crowding. If families have trouble connecting or the service is too slow due to combined use please contact us and we will try to correct the problem as soon as possible.

Need a library card?

You can get a library card for digital access if you have a local (anywhere in Jemez Valley area) address by applying online here.

Requests for ebooks & audiobooks

Requests for ebooks & audiobooks will be accepted and considered for purchase on our OverDrive system if available. Please know that new releases tend to be high priced but we will try and add high demand titles.

No new holds

Sorry, no new holds can be placed at this time. If you have an item on hold/reserve at the library it will be available when we open again.

No new Inter Library Loans

Sorry, no new Inter Library Loans at this time. Anything you have out may be returned to the book drop, or returned after we open again.

Library staff will be working onsite as well as from home to help ensure your accounts stay up to date and you have access to the online functions of your account. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us by email or call the library 575-829-9155 please leave a message if we are not there to answer the phones. We will return calls and emails as soon as we can, please be patient as we work through this closure.

Please visit our website, our Facebook page, and the Jemez Valley Nextdoor location for more details. We will update these platforms as soon as we have new information. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
