Bookmobile East Schedule

Bookmobile East Current Schedule

Dear Patrons,

Due to the outbreak of the Coronavirus COVID-19, our Governor Michelle Lujan-Grisham, has directed state government agencies to minimize face to face contact. The Department of Cultural Affairs Cabinet Secretary Debra Garcia y Griego directed the NM State Library to cancel the delivery of rural library services through the bookmobiles until further notice. 

 This is necessitated as a precautionary and common sense decision during this time. We will advise you when it is safe for bookmobile employees to resume rural library services.

 Please note: New Mexicans who report symptoms of COVID-19 infection such as fever, cough, shortness of breath, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat and new loss of taste or smell should call their health care provider and report to the NM DOH COVID-19 hotline immediately at 1-855-600-3453.  In addition, the Department of Health is updating its dedicated COVID-19 webpage, viewable here: cv.nmhealth.org.

 Thank you for your understanding during this time.

Updated through December 2020.

Please note: Bookmobile East normally travels the first, second, and third weeks of the month unless indicated otherwise.
