Welcome to the Library

We are so fortunate to have a new and beautiful library with over 18,000 books and awesome views of the Sandia Mountains. The library facility includes three computer labs, a classroom, a small conference room, and a large main area.

    The library is a great place to browse, read, study, use a computer, use the copy machine, write, draw, collaborate with friends, work on projects, or even play a game of chess.

    The library has a generous collection of fiction books organized in genres including fantasy, supernatural, science fiction, dystopian, historical fiction, horror, mystery, adventure, sports, romance, classics, realistic fiction, short stories, and graphic novels.
