Santa Fe Public Library

Library Administration

The City will continue to take proactive steps to protect the safety and well-being of our community. Effective Monday, March 16, the City of Santa Fe will close all public libraries and recreation centers. The Santa Fe Public Library will close its three branches (Main, La Farge, and Southside).

Please hold all returns at home until we reopen, library book drops will be locked and returns will not be accepted until we reopen. We do not have late fees and will suspend fines for overdue items at this time, so please disregard any notices you may receive until we reopen.

We are closed to the public but will still be answering reference questions and library card inquiries at our email library@santafenm.gov and we will respond as soon as possible. We do not know when we will reopen, as the emergency continues to evolve. We will not be responding to emails of that nature, so please check the city’s website santafenm.gov for any updates.
