In compliance with the All Together New Mexico, COVID Safe Practices for Individuals and Employers, Thomas Branigan Memorial Library will begin offering some limited services to the public beginning May 26, 2020.

Library patrons can now request curbside pick-up of library materials and those needing access to the public computer lab will be allowed use on a limited basis.

“We know that people need access to computers and the internet,” said Margaret Neill, Library Administrator, “many of the phone calls we get are for people looking for public access computing and printing.”

To comply with the local and state guidelines for safe opening, the Library will be limiting access to the computer lab to 10 people at a time, with a maximum of 30 minutes of computer time. The computers will be sanitized after each use. The computer lab will be open to the public from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday until further notice. Patrons are encouraged to call the Library at (575) 528-4000 before coming to see if computers are available or if there is a wait. Please also note that patrons are required by state and local proclamations and health orders to wear a mask when inside the building and to observe social distancing from others. The Library will provide masks to those who do not have them.

Curbside pick-up will also begin on May 26. Patrons will be able to choose whether to have their materials mailed to them or to pick them up. Hours for curbside service are 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Friday. Patrons will be asked to call ahead to ensure their materials are ready and to schedule a time for pick-up. Curbside pick-up will be contactless and Library staff will not be able to accept returns from patrons at curbside. Patrons who wish to return items can still use the book drop.

For more information, patrons can call the Library from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday at (575) 528-4000 or email library.reference@las-cruces.org.

Patrons can also check our website at library.las-cruces.org or follow us on our Facebook page (BraniganLibrary) or Instagram (braniganlibrarylc) for updates and information.
