Free Books to a Good Home…

 
Is your library’s book budget shrinking? Could you use some help filling in spots in your collection? The New Mexico State Library has completed a major weeding project, and, as a result, a large number of non-fiction books are up for grabs.

  We kept the best books and are now offering them to libraries statewide.  No books were withdrawn from the southwestern collection.

 Our goal is to get them out on library shelves where people will use them. As you look at the list, you will see there are a large variety of subjects covered in the 5000+ books.

 

Here is the list of the books available. They are listed in an Excel spreadsheet arranged in Dewey order. Choose the books you want, plan a trip to Santa Fe and call (800-876-2203)or e-mail the Reference Desk ( This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) to schedule your time. Bring boxes with you, so you can pack your books quickly.

 

If you cannot come to Santa Fe, or are unable to send someone, we will work with you to find a way to get the books to you. If you have any question, please call Linda Harris at 505-476-9763 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
