What our customers are saying. . .  


We received a note from a patron in Costilla saying, "It would be hard to explain the importance of this service to any non-reader or person other than a librarian. The anticipation of book arrivals, the decisions as which to read first, the gratitude, the countless hours of enjoyment, falling asleep to a good book. Especially when isolated without radio, tv, transportation. Book arrivals something to look forward to, the days always brighter when something to look forward to. Wonderful! Delightful! Exciting! Greatly appreciated!" 



Books-by-Mail is a book delivery service offered to rural residents of New Mexico who do not live near a State Library Rural Bookmobile stop or live near a public library.

Books that are not available at the time of request will be put on reserve, and will be sent to you when returned by another patron.
