Library Move Volunteer & Patron Info (last updated 6/29/2024)

Patrons:

  • The building is near completion and we have moved back into the children’s section, teen section, front desk, conference room, and most of the adult section! Installation of shelf lighting, and a few miscellaneous electrical items remains to be done but is in progress. Decor and additional seating areas will come back soon. Library services will be a bit unpredictable for a bit after that but feel free to stop in!
  • If you can volunteer to help please see the Volunteers section below for our needs and email or call to let us know how and when you can help – or just show up if you have a short walk or were planning to stop in anyhow, thank you!
  • Library Services were relocated temporarily to the Jemez Springs Community Presbyterian Church Library starting 6/14/2023 and ending Friday May 24, 2024. Thank you to the JSCPC for so generously sharing your space with us!!!!
  • The library main telephone line is back in service! Please use 575-829-9155 to reach us. Our cellphone number is 505-469-3307, or use email or messaging, or just stop in to contact us.
  • Library Events are proceeding! Please see listings in the local newspaper, online on our website/FaceBook/NextDoor, or posted in the library.
  • Printing service is temporarily less convenient than usual but still available. If you are able to bring your files to print on a flash-drive that will make things as simple as possible. Thanks for your patience!
  • No fax service at this time but we can help scan & email items.
  • We are currently accepting children’s items for return. We will start accepting all returns during business hours only (outdoor book drop will remain closed) starting July 5th. If you have a pressing need to return other items please let us know and we will work something out.
  • Placing holds is still not available but will be within a month.
  • We are now accepting requests for Inter-Library Loan and purchase! If you have a purchase request for a new publication please contact us. We are also ordering e-books and e-audiobooks so keep an eye on OverDrive or search our catalog for added titles.
  • The conference room is now available for use!!! We have moved library programs back to the conference room attached to the library building, with the exception of some of the fitness programs held offsite.
  • Library restrooms and kitchen area are available for use by patrons.
  • Public restrooms in the parking lot near the Village Office are available for use.

Wow! Thank you volunteers! Moving into the children’s & teen & adult book sections is as complete as it can be at the moment! The Library of Things is filling back in slowly and there is now a public computer available for use in the teen room!

And once we’ve got everything back together we will call out for items you have been storing for us to be returned. Sorry that has to be the last step, but it will really help reduce the chaos for us – thank you!

THANK YOU AMAZING VOLUNTEERS!!!
