Welcome to the New Mexico State Library

The New Mexico State Library, established in 1929, is committed to providing leadership that promotes effective library services and access to information to all citizens of New Mexico.  The State Library provides services that support public libraries as well as delivers direct library services to rural populations, state agencies, the visually impaired and physically disabled, and students and citizens conducting research.

  • The library supports public libraries by providing consulting services, offering training and continuing education opportunities, administering the librarian certification program, coordinating a state-wide summer reading program and tribal library program, and administering state and federal grants to public libraries. 
  • Through special library services for government employees, the State Library serves state agencies. The State Library also provides public distribution of information published by the state government through the State Publications Collection.
  • Citizens benefit from State Library services provided directly in Santa Fe and through the state-wide Rural Services program (bookmobile services for those towns without a public library and books by mail services for homebound citizens) and Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped program. The State Library also offers access to a state-wide database, Magazines Online, to all New Mexicans. 

Check us out and see what we’re all about… there are more than 2 million items in the State Library’s collection!

The Southwest history and culture room hours are 1:00 to 5:00 p.m., Wednesday and Friday.
