The Reference Department houses a large collection of current reference materials covering a large array of subjects. A reference librarian is available to help patrons find the materials and information they need. Telephone reference service is also available on Mondays and Fridays, from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM, when the library is offering curbside service. Call 575-439-4148 to contact the reference desk.
Fifteen computer workstations are available for public use on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. These computers are Windows 10 PCs with Microsoft Office programs. Two additional computers are available for Genealogy research, for students taking online classes, or patrons who require extra time for resumes and job applications. Check with the Reference Librarian on duty to access these computers. (These computers cannot print in color.)
Printing is available from library computers. Prints are $.15 per page for black and white, and $.50 per page for color. Mobile printing is also available from personal devices via upload, email, and the mobile app.
Reference librarians offer one on one computer assistance twice a week. Call the reference desk for availability and schedule.
