Happy New Year! Get Re-Acquainted with Taos Public Library

Here, at the Taos Public Library, at the beginning of a new year, we have much to offer. We are busy processing newly released, bestseller books, movies and documentaries, books on cds, e-books, and e-audio books. In the next few days, I will post a list of our new items, some of which are on must read lists for 2013, and up and coming releases for 2014.
Don't forget, we still offer public computers whether you have a library card or not, and wireless for those with laptops, ipads, etc.
The children's library still offers story and craft time every Thursday, from 10:30 to 11:30 am.
