Bookmobile West 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 decision during this time. We will notify 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 or shortness of breath, should call their health care provider to the NM DOH COVID 19 hotline immediately 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.
