How Do I Use The Library Now

Update as of 3/24/2020:

  • 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).
  • Wi-Fi (no password) will remain on at the library for patrons to use from the parking lot.
  • 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.
  • Request 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 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 at this time. Anything you have out may be returned to the book drop, or returned after we open again.
  • Community Bookshelves supplied by library volunteers exist at the San Ysidro Post Office, Amanda’s Store, and the Community Center when they are open. A “free” box will be restocked periodically on the ramp in front of the library. Again – please share safely and do not return items to the box without quarantining them for at least a week.

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.
