maintain regular hours; Wed. & Thurs. 2-6PM. Fri. & Sat., 10AM-3PM.

About Us

"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!
