See what we've got coming up at the Carrizozo Library!
It is the mission of the Carrizozo Community Public Library & Archive to:
Provide resources that enhance and contribute to individual knowledge and enlightenment
Promote open access to materials and services to serve cultural, recreational, and educational needs
Strengthen community and enhance quality of life for all residents from pre-school through maturity by advancing the joy of reading and use of technology for lifelong learning
"Carrizozo needs a public library." She said. "Yes, yes!" They all agreed.
And so, many years of planning and dreaming began...
Carrizozo Community Public Library & Archive is a true grass-roots success story. It all started as a committee with Carrizozo Works, Inc. (CWI) and a group of dedicated volunteers who became Friends of the Library. The Town of Carrizozo adopted the library as a municipal entity with an ordinance. The grand opening was celebrated in January of 2019.
All our volunteers know the value and importance of a free public library in a rural community. Carrizozo Library offers free Wi-Fi 24/7 with no passwod, public computers, a Book Nook program for children, and so much more. We host meetings for community organizations, a film series and a writer's group. We strive to be a part of the community and provide for it.
And we can always use more help. Consider volunteering with us today!
