New Self-Service Kiosks

The Santa Fe Public Library has installed new self-service kiosks at all locations. The new kiosks provide patrons with the freedom to independently process their own library transactions, while also providing staff with more time to assist patrons and work on other tasks. Patrons are able to check out all types of library materials using the kiosks. Just place all of the materials that you wish to check out in the slot and the kiosk will scan and check them out to you. If you have any questions circulation staff are available to assist you.

Main Library Media Collection

The Library has moved the Main Library media collection to the first floor open stacks. Patrons are now able to browse DVDs, both fiction and non-fiction along with the children's DVD collection. In addition, all audio books are also available to browse and check out. Items that have not been relocated, including all music CDs and some DVDs, can have holds placed on them.

To place a hold on any library item, patrons may call any of the libraries or visit the Library Catalog. The Main Library may be reached at (505) 955-6781 or (505) 955-6785; Oliver La Farge Branch at (505) 955-4860; Southside Branch at (505) 955-2820.
